Here is a cabbage soup recipe that has been handed down in my family for years. We always get raves that it is the best cabage soup ever and my 4 year old daughter calls it "her soup" and always asks for it. I hope some of you enjoy it and it helps you to get through this diet......

Cabbage Soup (poor man's soup)
Paprika and flour browned together
Shredded Carrot
2 cans diced tomatoes
Medium sized head of cabbage
1 pacakge of Sausage (either Eckrich Beef Smoked or I use Healthy Choice)- not sure if they work in the diet
Potatoes (if desired) - probably not great for the diet


1. Take approx. 2 cups of flour and put in a pan - add about two tablespoons of paprika and turn on low heat - stir constantly so it does not burn (yes you are browning this dry)- when this mixture turns the color of sand (more like reddish sand) it is done. I generally just dump flour in the pan and add paprika until it turns the right color. This is the main spice and "secret" to the recipe.
2. In a large pot saute onion and garlic with a small amount of butter or olive oil for about 3 minutes - stir constantly
3. Add about two cups of water
4. Add approximately 8 tablespoons of the paprika/flour browned mixture and mix in so their are no lumps
5. Add both cans of tomatoes and stir
6. Add in the cabbage chopped up
7. Add in the shredded carrot
7. Simmer for a couple of hours - until cabbage is done - I sometimes simmer this all day if I am home just to cook in the tastes.
8. During the last 20 minutes add in the sausage and potatoes (if desired) you can make this without the sausage and potatoes also. If you do add potatoes then just cook until they are done.

Additions: if you like spicy flavors you can add in some lawrys RED PEPPER SEASONED SALT(I usually just keep this on the table for anyone who wants to add in)

Tastes best the second day!

If you make lots of the flour/paprika mixture you can store it in a tupperware container and use at another time.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the recipe - it sounds really tasty. Question for all the "CSD experts" out there - how does this soup (minus the sausage and potatoes) fit in with the diet plans? I would think it's ok, as there's not too much flour used (and perhaps we could substitue wholewheat?)...? what does everyone else think?

Just a note, I've found that rutabagas and turnips taste a bit like potatos when I put them in my soup. a possible substitute.
