Cabbage Soup Diet Recipe

miracle cabbage soup diet recipeRecipe for The Cabbage Soup Diet

This is the famous Original Cabbage Soup Diet Recipe.  Before we go any further, I have to tell you that there is nothing magical about this combination of foods.  Feel free to substitute.  I made the soup pictured here with green beans and kale substituted for the carrots to make it lower in carbs.

The Cabbage Soup Diet is a 7 day diet and this soup is eaten every day(along with your other foods).  If you truly follow this diet to the letter, you will need to make this soup twice.

Cabbage Soup Diet Recipe

  • 6 green onions (also called spring onions or scallions)
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 or 2 cans tomatoes
  • 3 carrots (I subbed in kale and green beans to keep it low carb)
  • 1/2 pound sliced mushrooms
  • small bunch celery
  • 1/2 head cabbage
  • 2-3 boullion cubes (I use this:Better than Bouillon)
  • 48 oz Low Sodium V8 or vegetable juice
  • seasonings to taste

(NOTE) Some recipes call for a pack of Lipton onion soup mix.  I never use it, it adds unnecessary crap and this tastes great without it.  Add a big tablespoon of Better than Bouillon instead.

Basically cut and chop everything up and cook in a large pot for a couple hours.  Easy peasy!

Not only can you use this recipe in The Cabbage Soup Diet, it can be used in any of the diets out there.  Hungry after a day of dieting? Eat a bowl of this soup.  Magic!

My kids eat this soup as well and they love it.  Add chicken or beef and take to work as a low carb lunch.  This soup is very versatile.

You can find more recipes for the Cabbage Soup diet in this inexpensive Kindle book: Cabbage Soup Recipes 2.0

The other great thing about the Cabbage Soup diet recipe is that you can eat this soup for several days and save a fortune on groceries!  A great budget stretcher.  I hope you like it!

    The soup looks great! Can I use minced meat or hamburger meat instead of mushrooms (meat eater here, lol)?

    Many many moons ago when the Cabbage soup diet first came out I was on it! I’ll be darned if I remember what was in it (the original) but definitely not as much as is in this one–this is more of a vegetable soup which by the way sounds really temptingly good!!

  24. Marielle A. Lord says:

    I made this soup many years ago. I lost 50lbs. In 3 months with this soup. It was so good I ate it all the time and still do!

  27. My husband did this diet and he lost weight FAST, but he smelled so bad for a week.. ha ha The gas he produced from the cabbage was enough to make me not eat for a week. ha ha It did work though, like a charm, he lost a lot of weight.
