I am super glad the holidays are over, everything is packed away and we can get back on a schedule. As much as I enjoy indulging in all those rich and delicious holiday foods, it can mess with your gut. Too many sweets and fatty foods can also pack on the pounds, and who needs that, right?! With the New Year, it is time to get back into a healthier way of eating. When it is super cold outside like it is right now, I love a yummy soup recipe.
If it can be a healthy soup that also tastes great, I am even more excited to make it. If you want a delicious buttery slice of heaven to serve after this soup, you will want to make my Traditional Pound Cake Recipe From Scratch.
With this Spicy Chicken Sausage and Cabbage soup recipe, you get a hearty soup that is packed full of flavor but not calories. By substituting a high calorie pork or beef sausage with chicken, you are slashing your calories in this recipe. Also, by making it tomato instead of cream based, you are saving even more calories. The result is a happy tummy that won’t turn into a fat tummy! Serve with some hot whole wheat bread and you have a delicious meal the whole family will love!
- One pound of chicken sausage links
- 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
- 1 chopped cabbage head
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 cans tomato sauce
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- Combine all ingredients in your crock pot
- Cook on low for 3-4 hours
- Top with shredded cheese and serve
What is your favorite go-to cold weather comfort food?

That looks delicious. I’m a big fan of cabbage, and anything spicy is good.

This looks so yummy! I haven’t tasted sausage with cabbage before so this will definitely be something new for me.

Sounds very good. I love just about anything with cabbage in it. This would be a great recipe to make since it’s been so cold out lately.
Chrissy Hme saysFebruary 28, 2015 at 5:13 am
I think I have all the ingredients for this already. I love stews and especially anything with cabbage in it.
Sharon Ulery Ruggieri saysFebruary 28, 2015 at 9:09 am
Stews are a personal favorite and I don’t get to make it often, can’t wait to give this a try

I’d like to make sausage and cabbage stew for my husband. I think it’s a great flavor twist that he’d like to try.
Cassie Tucker saysFebruary 28, 2015 at 11:36 pm
This recipe looks so simple but so tasty! I’ll have to talk to the hubs about adding this into our future meal plans!
Chrystal M. saysMarch 1, 2015 at 12:38 am
I love a good cabbage soup so this looks perfect for me. I like the addition of the chicken and then just a tiny bit of cheese. I’m all about the spice too.

Looks really good! Will have to make this.
Ashleigh Walls saysMarch 1, 2015 at 7:16 pm
I’ve never tried a stew like this before. I love chicken sausage and would like to eat more cabbage so I will be trying this one out!
HilLesha O'Nan saysMarch 1, 2015 at 8:01 pm
I’m a strict vegetarian, but wow! That looks utterly amazing. Stews are perfect for cold days like this, too.
yonawilliams saysMarch 2, 2015 at 7:08 am
In the cold weather season, I tend to gravitate towards
soups and chili more often. One of my favorites is White Chicken Chili – it’s
so creamy and spicy.
Lynn Dee saysMarch 2, 2015 at 3:59 pm
Our favorite cold weather comfort food are beef stew and chili. The husband actually cooked chili again last night.
ElizOF saysMarch 2, 2015 at 6:39 pm
That dish looks really hearty and delicious. Like Hilesha, I don’t eat meet but this looks great.
Aisha Kristine Chong saysMarch 5, 2015 at 12:13 pm
Ohh the dish looks super yummy and fulfilling to have! Yumm!!
mycraftingworld saysMay 14, 2017 at 6:18 am
This sounds good. It is getting a little too hot for it but I am still noting it to try later.
Sarah L saysJune 30, 2018 at 10:47 pm
That does look like a yummy cold weather soup. However this week we had 4 days above 100 degrees so no soup right now.
Mary Songer saysJuly 1, 2018 at 1:16 am
This recipe couldn’t be easier and it looks very tasty. One of my cold weather recipes is a spicy macaroni and four cheeses.
