Cabbage Roll Soup
It’s a pretty well documented fact that we absolutely LOVE soup! Good thing soup is so super easy to make and especially when you dump it all in a crockpot, it well, kinda cooks itself! LOVE THAT!!
Soup is also a very versatile thing to make and customize to your tastes. It’s all about the spices that you put in it. Well, I guess that pretty much applies to all of cooking really. But somehow, it just seems way easier with soup.
This cabbage roll soup is so good that you will forget all about going through all the hassle of making traditional cabbage rolls. Easy peasy!!! Brown the meat, dump everything in your crockpot and then go out and have fun! Your house will smell amazing and dinner will be ready when you get home!
The other really great thing about soup is this. Make a gigantic pot, eat it for dinner, then divide the rest into serving size containers and freeze it! Voila! You have just created your own super healthy frozen meal!
I do this ALL the time! I usually take one week, make a different kind of soup every night, freeze the leftovers, then I don’t have to cook for like a month and we have a delicious meal every single night! And those single servings? Perfect to take to the office for lunch as well. Just think, a whole month of yummy lunch and you didn’t have to even think about what to take, well, except for deciding which of your yummy soups you’re going to take!
