This nourishing and wholesome vegetable cabbage soup recipe is so delicious! Packed with hearty and filling cabbage, aromatics, and plant-based meatless crumbles. Pair it with your favorite crusty bread for a perfect cozy meal.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plant-based or dairy
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, de-stemmed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste or 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 3 celery hearts, chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 pound green cabbage, roughly chopped into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) canned fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups (32 ounces) vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 packet (3.35 ounce) Plant Boss All-Purpose Plant Crumbles, cooked


  1. In a large dutch oven or stock pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Once the butter is sizzling, add in the onions and cook together, while stirring, until softened and translucent- about 2-3 minutes. Toss in the fresh thyme and continue cooking together.
  2. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Then add in the chopped celery and carrots, and cook together until lightly softened, about 3-4 minutes. Add in the chopped cabbage and continue cooking together until the cabbage softens a bit. Season the mixture with salt, pepper, and curry powder.
  3. Pour in the fire roasted tomatoes, vinegar, and broth; use a wooden utensil to stir everything together, scraping up any bits on the bottom of the pot. Cover the pot with a lid, reduce the heat to medium-low, and allow the soup to simmer together for 20 minutes.
  4. While the soup simmers, on another stovetop burner, prepare the Plant Boss All-Purpose Plant Crumbles as directed on the packet.
  5. Add the plant crumbles directly into the soup pot and stir together to fully combine. Then remove the soup from heat.
  6. Serve the soup warm with crusty bread, if desired. Enjoy!
