Cabbage Soup - Slowcooker
Why I Love This Recipe
This cabbage soup is so flavourful and because it is done in the slow cooker it is also super easy! Tender cabbage is so wonderful along with a delicious, flavourful broth, this soup is so comforting and enjoyable.

1 Head Green Cabbage, stem removed
1 C Carrots, sliced

Start by adding the celery, carrots, peppers, and onions to the pot. Season with a ½ Tsp. sea salt and black pepper.
Using a mandolin with the shredding setting activated, start by shredding the cabbage on one of the smaller settings for a finer shred. Halfway through, switch to a larger setting and shred the remaining cabbage a bit larger. Add the cabbage to the pot.
Add the garlic, tomatoes, vegetable stock, thyme, marjoram, pepper flakes, oregano, sage, bay leaves, and another ¼ Tsp. sea salt / black pepper. Drizzle with the oil, cover and set to HIGH.
After 2 ½ hours, open the lid and stir in the drained beans, zucchini, and another ¾ Tsp. sea salt & ½ Tsp. black pepper. Cover and continue cooking on high for another 1 ½ - 2 Hours.
Prior to service, stir in the fresh parsley and celery leaves.
