Chicken Cabbage Soup

Chicken Cabbage Soup

Today was a day that was all about simple foods with simple flavors.   I was in the mood to make a pot of chicken soup but I wanted it to be a bit different than my usual recipe.  I thought of incorporating tender cabbage instead of noodles or rice.  I’m glad that I did.  My chicken cabbage soup is light, delicately flavored and includes some of my favorite Asian ingredients such as soy sauce and mirin.  Enjoy!  Tessa


  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp mirin
  • pinch of white pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • chopped cilantro for garnish

Grab a large sauce pan and add all the ingredients with the exception of the cilantro.  Cook until the vegetables are tender.  Ladle up and garnish with the cilantro.  Makes about 6 servings.
