How to make vegetarian spicy cabbage soup

Print this recipe
When I was in college, a friend of mine told me about this amazing cabbage soup diet. You made a large pot of cabbage soup at the beginning of the week and you could eat as much of it as you wanted all week long. It sounded too good to be true, but I gave it a whirl anyway. By the end of the week I was totally sick of cabbage soup, but I couldn't deny that the low-calorie dish did fill me up and keep me from overeating! The recipe below is a spicier version of that soup.
Although I can't recommend eating this soup for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, it is a flavorful, delicious soup that makes a wonderful meal. It's completely vegetarian while also being filling and satisfying. It's comforting enough for cold winter days, and it's also a perfect choice when you're looking for a quick and easy detox meal. It's full of vegetables, so you'll feel great after you eat it.
