Soup Bowl Cabbage Rolls

One thing I remember loving when I was a kid is stuffed cabbage rolls, but it is really a lot of work for a single serving. I was very excited when I came across this recipe for a soup version.

The recipe comes from Taste of Home magazine. I cut the recipe in half.

You need some ground meat (beef, bison, turkey), Worcestershire sauce, tomato, rice, cabbage, garlic, chicken stock or water, onion powder, cayenne pepper, basil, salt and pepper and some parmesan cheese for garnish.

Cut the cabbage up into bite sized pieces.

Chop up your garlic and we are ready to start cooking!

Brown the ground beef with the garlic.

While that browns, measure out your spices and Worcestershire sauce.

When its nice and done, get it out of the pan and into some cute Pyrex if you've got some.

Drain out the fat, or use a piece of white bread to soak it all up like I do.

Add in the rice, seasonings, beef, cabbage and broth. Bring this to a boil and then reduce the heat to low.

Cover it and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the rice is cooked.

Now we are ready to add in the tomato and get eating.

Stir in the tomatoes and salt and we are ready to enjoy this simple soup.

Garnish it with a little bit of Parmesan cheese and enjoy! I was so happy with how this turned out and will be making it again.
