My husband grew up in Poland and he loves homemade soup. So I made this kielbasa and cabbage soup with him in mind and he devoured it 🙂 It is so good, I could eat it every week. This recipe is warming and filling and truly soothes the soul.

You only need a few simple and inexpensive ingredients to make this recipe, but the flavor is incredible. That is my favorite kind of meal! It is perfect for a busy weeknight or chilly fall day.

This soup is Whole30 compliant, gluten free and dairy free. If you are doing a round of Whole30, be sure to check the labels on your kielbasa. I love both Pederson’s Farms and Garrett Valley Farms no sugar added sausages.

    This was amazing. Everyone loved it! I used turkey kielbasa. When looking through all the different recipes out there I saw you used dill. My go to spice. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Deeeelicious! I “might” have added more onion than called for, but the recipe is vague about what size onion should be used. The only other thing I added was some dried parsley.
    To me, this soup is delicious just as is.
