There’s nothing like a hearty soup in middle of winter. This cabbage soup is perfect comfort food for a cold winter night and loaded with veggies! A few of my other favorite main dish soups are Stuffed Pepper Soup, Turkey Chili Taco Soup, and Beef, Tomato and Acini Di Pepe Soup. You can see more Soup Recipes here!

My cousin Katia through together this amazing soup. Made with a few simple ingredients she had on hand, it filled the kitchen with the aroma of comfort food. The portions are large, making this a filling main dish soup.

If you don’t like pork, you can add more chicken here. It’s made with chicken breast, but chicken thighs would also be great.
