How to make low-carb cabbage soup

Print this recipe
Cabbage soup might not look beautiful or seem fancy, but oh boy does it taste delicious. When you simmer the cabbage together with flavorful sausage and spicy green chilies, something magical happens. Cabbage becomes more than just a coleslaw ingredient – it becomes the star of the show. The recipe below totally delivers a comforting meal in a low-carb, Keto-friendly package.
The best way to make this soup really stand out is to make the chicken broth. Chicken broth is preferred to beef broth because it doesn't overpower the delicate flavors of the cabbage. You can use store-bought broth (or bouillon cubes and water) but you'll notice a difference when you're using the homemade stuff.
