Crock Pot Sausage and Cabbage Soup Recipe

Crock Pot Cabbage Soup with sausage, fresh vegetables, and rich tomato broth makes a hearty winter meal.


– 1 Tbsp avocado oil – 1 yellow onion diced – 1.5 lbs ground Italian sausage * – 4 cloves garlic minced – 2 large carrots chopped – 1 green bell pepper chopped – 4 cups chicken broth – 1 (28-oz) can crushed tomatoes – 1 bay leaf – 1 tsp paprika – 2 tsp dried parsley – ¼ tsp black pepper – Sea salt to taste – 6 cups green cabbage sliced**


Heat avocado oil on medium-high in a large nonstick skillet. Cook chopped onion for 3–5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.

Step 1

A spatula breaks raw Italian sausage and minced garlic into small pieces in the skillet. The sausage should be lightly golden-brown after a few minutes. Undercooked.

Step 2

Place sausage mixture in crock pot bottom. Stir in chopped carrots, bell pepper, chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, bay leaf, paprika, dried parsley, salt, pepper, and a third of the cabbage. 

Step 3

Ensure everything mixes. If possible, stir the remaining chopped cabbage into the soup. Leaving it on top will cook it down as the soup cooks.

Step 4

Cover the crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8. Great if you can stir the soup after an hour to add cabbage!

Step 5

Eat big bowls of soup with garlic bread, toasted baguette, or cornbread!
