Cabbage Roll Soup

If you love cabbage rolls but don’t like the hassle of making them, this Cabbage Roll Soup is so easy to whip up and hits all the right spots.

We are half way into February which means many of those New Year’s Resolutions have been tossed out the window.  But don’t fret, there’s still plenty of time to get back on track! 

Honestly, I’m not big on resolutions (probably because I never stick to them), but I do try to stick to a clean diet and consistent workouts.  Sometimes I’m on the ball, sometimes I’m not, but I try not to stress about it. 

Half the battle is having healthy foods on hand and prep, prep, prep.  Luckily, soup is one of those meals that is so easy to whip up, hello one-pot meal!  It also freezes well, so prep on.

I’ve always loved cabbage rolls, and so does the H, but sometimes I don’t want to go through the hassle of making them, it’s a lot of work! I’m all about quick, easy and healthy.  The Instant Pot makes this recipe super simple to make, but if you don’t have one, it’s just as easy to make on the stove.  I’ve included both versions below.
