Do you know why I love soup? Besides being so comforting on winter nights I actually find them super easy to make. This 1-pot easy soup recipe is a delicious full-flavored soup that is one of my son’s absolute favorites.

Actually my son is the reason this soup even came to existence in our house. Before that, I was not in the habit of making soup! But after eating tomato soup from an Indian restaurant my son started asking for tomato soup all the time.

The soup we eat at the restaurant was full of cream and sugar (like many of the store-bought versions I found) so I set off to make my own. At first, I just made tomato soup, with lots of garlic and onion to help deepen the flavor. Then one day we decided to grow cabbage in our garden. We had SO much cabbage that I was adding it to everything. And I just so happen to add it to a tomato soup I was making him.

He practically ate the entire pot. So this has become another one of our winter family recipes!

Getting a rich flavourful soup

  1. Veggie broth: In order to get a nice flavour out of your soup, I suggest either making your own veggie broth (you can check out this post for a super easy and free way to make yours at home). Otherwise, pick up a good quality broth that has a nice clean flavour.
  2. Spice it up: You also want to make sure to add in some onion, celery and enough spices. Remember you are adding a lot of liquid so the spices (like salt) will be muted. Cabbage itself adds a TON of flavour to soup and the tomato will help add a bit of sweetness once it cooks enough.
  3. Let this soup cook. Make a large pot on a Sunday or evening that you are not in a rush and let it simmer for a while. this will help create a deep rich flavour.
  4. Save some veggie: This trick my husband taught me. He hates soggy or overcooked veggies. So I always save some cabbage and a bit of celery to add into the soup a few minutes before it is done. this adds a bit of crispness back in and preserves some of the vitamines in the cabbage.

Thanks for reading! If you make this recipe please like and comment, that would mean a lot to me! And tag me with your re-creations so I can share over on Instagram!
