Healing Turmeric Cabbage Soup

This slow cooker Healing Turmeric Cabbage Soup is going to be your best friend.

It’s filled with all major vitamins and minerals, guaranteeing you have a healthy meal. Along with that, this soup is amazing for fighting inflammation!

It is filled with Chicken, cabbage and multiple veggies and spices, giving it the flavor you want and the nutrients you need to have a better day.

You can make this for dinner or meal prep it for lunch in your Instant Pot. Super flavorful and gives your immune system the boost it needs to work better than ever.

Did I mention I lost 3lbs the week I had this for lunch every day and had more energy?

FYI, I don’t know if this is typical, and if it will do that for everyone, but it sure made me excited that it did it for me.

Healing Cabbage Soup

The evil Coronavirus has us all being challenged in ways we never imagined. Like many of you, I am still finding it difficult to understand and accept our new reality. However, with each passing day, that fact that we need to take responsibility for our own health is becoming more and more apparent.

I am a big believer in natural immune boosting. One of the ways I have been trying to boost my immune system during this pandemic time is to get sun exposure (to boost my Vitamin D), and eating healing foods in abundance.

Today, I decided I wanted to share with you one of my oldest recipes – Healing Cabbage Soup. It is what I have always made when we are under the weather, or just feeling sluggish, and need a vitamin boost. You can feel it’s effects almost immediately.

My hope is to inspire even just one person to make this soup (or another vitamin packed meal) to help boost your immune system during this trying time of COVID-19. I wish wellness to all, and very speedy recoveries.

This is a low-calorie intake diet (around 1,000 calories per day) and its main purpose is quick weight loss — 10 pounds or more in 7 days. It is keto, vegetarian, and vegan!

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup sliced fennel, fronds reserved for garnish
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
  • 1 small head green cabbage (1 1/2 lbs.), chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can unsalted cannellini beans, rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • Lemon zest for garnish

Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add carrots, fennel and onion cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, coriander and salt cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth and tomatoes bring to a boil. Add cabbage reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Stir in beans, sugar and oregano cook until the beans are heated through, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon zest and reserved fennel fronds, if desired serve immediately.

How to make a low histamine cabbage soup

So let’s start with the chicken, although it can be skipped altogether. When on a low histamine diet, we need to avoid eating leftover animal protein, or animal protein that was not fresh enough.

The only treatment that stops the formation of histamine triggering bacteria is actually freezing. So, I make sure the meat I buy is super fresh (processed as recently as possible), or has been flash-frozen after processing. Thawing can be done pretty fast in cold water (still in the original packaging).

After thawing give the meat a good rinse and pat dry well. Cook immediately, as fast as possible (pressure cooking, roasting, or cooking in a pan are absolutely fine, as long as they don’t take hours). Leave the stews and harder pieces of meat for the pressure cooker.

So, I had prepared one of my spatchcocked chicken a day before, shredded and froze the leftovers. That’s what I used for this soup. I just take them out of the freezer. Put them in a hot soup and in five minutes all is ready to eat. Again, you can totally make this soup vegetarian, but a little chicken gives it something extra soothing.

The rest is super simple. No additional explanations are necessary. I like to have a soup like this with some fresh sprouts (of approves vegetables), for some extra nutrition.

If you like this cabbage soup you might also want to try the Healing Vegetable Soup with Kale and Broccoli Sprouts.

For another low histamine, recipe try my Thai Style Curry, Low Histamine.

Magic Healing Soup

Whether you're fighting off a cold or simply want something to warm you up, this Magic Healing Soup is the perfect vegetable soup recipe for the job. It's a cross between a vegetable soup and cabbage soup that's light yet comforting and delicious. We call it "magic" because it's a healing recipe that is packed with good-for-you ingredients that help you feel better. The taste is so good that you'll want to go back for a second bowl, and you won't even feel guilty about it! Better yet, the most difficult part of this recipe is chopping the vegetables. From there, it's just dump and simmer. This can also be made into a slow cooker soup recipe. Simply saute the vegetables separately, add the ingredients to your slow cooker, and good on high for 2 to 3 hours. It makes enough soup to freeze some for later, so you can have a meal ready to thaw whenever you need it!

This makes a large amount of soup, perfect for freezing. To freeze, simmer the soup for 20-30 minutes, just so the vegetables are slightly undercooked. Cool soup completely, then transfer to Ziplock bags. Freeze bags on a cookie sheet for about an hour, then layer the bags in your freezer once frozen.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've always wondered what's in the soup that makes a person well after taking it. Maybe the veggies, the spices, the soup itself. Good thing there is the Healing Soup.

Maybe it's just me but I think all soup is has a potential to heal in one way or another. There are so many varieties and ways to make it make, I can eat it every day and just about do. I love how hearty this soup is without being too much. the only thing missing is some hot peppers to clear out those nasal passages.

This looks like a good, healthy meal for the winter season!

Its boxing day and i have a cold that won't let me enjoy opening my presents. Luckily my mom made me a bowl of vegetable soup that reminds me of this recipe. I don't know what makes chicken broth heal your cold and flu, but it always works for me

I put this in the crock pot this morning. I decided since it's snowing outside, I would put on a big pot of soup. The smell that is coming from my kitchen is absolutely amazing! I was so excited about this, that I had to taste the broth. Oh, it is so good! This is one of those recipes that you can't wait for dinner. I did leave out the mushrooms, but only because my family is not too fond of them. Other than that, I made the recipe as written.

I think that this would be a very filling soup with all the veggies it calls for. I do like the flexibility of sauting the veggies and then adding all the ingredients to the crock pot. I do love coming home to the scent of a yummy dinner cooking and knowing that I don't have to do anything, but serve the meal! I make my own tomato sauce every year, so I would be using that for the soup.

I'm not a veggie person, so I was hesitant to try this. It wasn't too bad. I agree with the person below in that I would add something else to it like noodles.

To be honest, I am not the biggest vegetable lover, but I actually enjoyed this soup! I would add noodles or meat to the soup next time, but the base of the soup is just perfect!

This soup was magnificent! And magical. I would've made it without mushrooms, but everything else was delicious!

This soup tasted a lot like minnestrone. All it was missing was some noodles. I'll be sure to add those next time.

I enjoyed every spoonful of this soup. Next time I would add more kidney beans and maybe some garbopnz beans. I would also substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth and added a diced potato for even more heartiness.

Tasty, hearty soup. You could make it vegetarian by using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, too!

This was the perfect tasty feel-good soup for a gloomy day!

LOVED this soup. Couldn't resist a second serving :) The flavors went so well together, and it was surprisingly simple to make. It was perfect for a chilly fall day.

This is one of my new favorite soup recipes. I loved the veggies, especially the mushrooms and zucchini. I will definitely make a batch this winter and heat some up on a cold night - yum!

Anti-Cancer Cabbage Soup Recipe

If you want to significantly lower your risk of developing cancer, consider eating cabbage at least a few times a week. Cabbage belongs to the Cruciferous family of vegetables - other vegetables that belong in this family include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, Brussels sprouts, Bok Choy, watercress, and arugula.

Phytonutrients found in cabbage and other Cruciferous vegetables stimulate your genes to increase production of enzymes that detoxify your cells, resulting in elimination of free radicals, toxins, and potential carcinogens from your body.

If you do a search through the archives of peer-reviewed and indexed journals at the National Library of Medicine, you'll find numerous studies that indicate that people who eat large amounts of cruciferous vegetables have a lower-than-average risk of developing lung, colon, breast, ovarian, prostate, and bladder cancer.

Perhaps the most powerful, anti-cancer phytonutrient found in cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables is indole-3-carbinole, a compound that stimulates cellular detoxification, including estrogen detoxification. Indole-3-carbinole's ability to prevent estrogen dominance is what makes cruciferous vegetables like cabbage an excellent food choice for cancer prevention, particularly breast cancer prevention.

If you want to enjoy the many health benefits of cabbage but don't know where to start, give the following Cabbage-Miso soup a try. It's super easy to make, and is one of the tastiest soups that we enjoy in our home.

Cabbage Miso Soup Recipe


4 cups (around 10 ounces) chopped green cabbage
6 cups water or vegetable broth (vegetable broth adds lots of flavor)
2 celery ribs, diagonally sliced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
8 garlic cloves, 4 finely chopped and 4 sliced
1/3 cup miso (or Korean den jang)
Few drops sesame oil per bowl(optional)

1. Bring 6 cups of water or vegetable broth to a boil in a big soup pot. Add cabbage, celery, onion, carrot, and sliced garlic. Cover, reduce to low-medium heat, and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

2. Stir in chopped garlic, then turn off heat. Dissolve miso with some of hot soup liquid in a cup or bowl, then pour it into the pot. For an extra zing of flavor, add a few drops of sesame oil to each bowl just before serving. If you enjoy sweet and sour soups, add fresh lime juice (about 1 lime for the whole pot) right before adding the miso.

Enjoy this nourishing cabbage and miso soup - it goes wonderfully with a bowl of rice and kim chi, a fermented Korean cabbage dish.
