Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Soup

As a young girl I would watch my mom and grandma spend almost an entire day prepping a meal to feed the family. This was the norm and happened often. I grew up loving many of the foods and wishing I too could cook like them. But life is busy and I am a bit of a lazy cook LOL Just being honest. I get frustrated when the family eats meals faster than I could prepare them. Plus I snack while I cook. So if it takes me all day to cook, I am not hungry at dinner time.

One of my fave meals has always been cabbage rolls, yet I have never cooked it. It is time consuming and my family is picky. I have however made variations of this recipe by making “Lazy cabbage rolls ” or “Poor mans cabbage rolls” which are a messy layered version in a casserole dish. I have even made Cabbage Roll soup and was surprised that my family loved it.

I think the soft, slow cooked veggies made it easier for my picky eaters to enjoy. They did not see the cabbage as a big green wrap like they would had it been in roll form. Plus the onions and other veggies are cooked to a point they are almost invisible. This recipe I am happy to say has become a family fave!

    This looks so delicious! Definetly a must try recipe for our family! Thanks!

  6. I just tried his yesterday, and it’s delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

    The yield was a little much for my needs, but this will certainly feed plenty.

    One thing I noticed quickly is how polarizing just the word cabbage can be. I chalk it up to picky eaters, afraid to try something unfamiliar.
