  • Large pot or saucepan
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Small Bowl


  • ¼ cup Olive oil
  • 1 diced Yellow onion
  • 2 tsp Minced garlic
  • 4 cups thinly sliced Red cabbage
  • 2 cups Diced Yellow potatoes
  • 1 cup sliced Carrots
  • 1 cup sliced Celery
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-1 ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 6 cups Vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp Chopped fresh dill
  • 1 can 15 ounces navy beans, drained and rinsed


  • Heat olive oil in a big pot on medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook for 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add cabbage, potatoes, carrots, celery, mustard, 1 teaspoon of salt, and pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes until veggies soften a bit.
  • Keep aside ¼ cup of broth.
  • Pour the rest of the broth into the pot with vinegar. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for 20 minutes.
  • Mix reserved broth with flour until smooth, then add to the soup. Stir well.
  • Add beans and dill, and cook for 10-15 minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Serve hot and enjoy your tasty Red Cabbage Soup!


  • Let the soup cool down before putting it in the fridge. Keep it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Warm it up in a pot on the stove when you want to eat it.
  • Make sure the soup is completely cold before freezing it. Put it in a container that can go in the freezer. It will stay good for up to 6 months. When you’re ready to eat it, let it thaw in the fridge overnight, then heat it in a pot.
  • We suggest using navy beans, but you can also try other kinds like cannellini, great northern, lima, or chickpeas.
  • If you need to avoid gluten, use gluten-free flour instead of regular flour.

How Do You Slice a Red Cabbage?

How Do You Slice a Red Cabbage?

To slice a red cabbage, first cut it in half through the stem. Then, cut each half in half again. Remove the tough stem from each quarter and thinly slice the cabbage. You can also use a mandoline slicer or a food processor with a shredding attachment.

Can You Make this Soup in a Slow Cooker?

Yes, you can! Start by cooking the onion and garlic in a pan. Then, put everything except the flour, beans, and dill in the slow cooker. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Towards the end, mix flour with ¼ cup vegetable broth, beans, and dill into the slow cooker. Let it cook for another 15 minutes before serving.

Can I Freeze Red Cabbage Soup?

I don’t recommend freezing it because it doesn’t taste the same when you thaw it later.
