Cabbage Apple Soup

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"A flavorful sweet-and-sour cabbage soup. Years ago a local restaurant served a cabbage apple soup that I've been trying to recreate. This is my best attempt, and possibly even better! For a vegetarian version, simply omit the bacon."

  1. Place bacon pieces in a large pot and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Drain fat from the pot and add olive oil, onion, garlic, and caraway seeds. Cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in chopped apple, vegetable broth, apple cider, cabbage, cider vinegar, and sugar. Bring soup to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer, partially covered, until cabbage is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Cut bread into large chunks and place them in the bottom of six soup bowls. Ladle the soup over the bread and serve.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you omit the bacon, add salt to taste.
  • I used a peppered bacon that the local co-op had for extra flavor and a small baguette for the bread. You can also use a Vidalia® or other sweet onion in place of the yellow onion.

We loved this. But, like another reviewer, I omitted the olive oil, using the bacon drippings instead. I realized I had no vegetable bouillon or stock, so I used chicken bouillon. Also, I u...

This was a big hit at my house! I skipped the olive oil and fried the onions, garlic, and caraway right in the grease left over from the bacon. The caraway really sets this dish apart from sim...

Very sweet and tangy. I really like this unique recipe.

This recipe is a great fall recipe that uses up all the apples and cabbage! I found this recipe very sweet for my tastes though. I would personally omit the sugar completely. On the other hand, ...
