  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 14-16 ounces Kielbasa Sausage sliced into bite sized pieces (use a fully cooked variety)
  • 1 Medium Onion finely diced
  • 2 Carrots sliced into rounds or half rounds depending on their size
  • 2 Celery Ribs sliced or diced
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • Pinch Rosemary
  • 6 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 pound Small Red Potatoes cut into bite sized pieces
  • pound Green Cabbage chopped into bite sized pieces
  • Salt if need at the end


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. When the oil is hot, but not smoking, add the sausage. Cook the sausage for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the onions, carrots and celery to the pot. Cook the vegetables for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the garlic, oregano, thyme, black pepper and rosemary. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  • Add the chicken broth and stir, while gently scraping any bits off the bottom of the pot. Raise the heat to high and bring the broth to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover the pot and simmer the soup for 10 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and the chopped cabbage to the soup.
  • Raise the heat to high and bring the cabbage soup to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender and the cabbage is wilted. Keep the soup at a simmer and stir occasionally.
  • Taste the cabbage soup and add salt, if needed. As a reference we added ½ teaspoon to our finished soup.
