  • 8 ounces dried white beans soaked overnight
  • 2 ounces bacon diced
  • 1 cup onion peeled and diced
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 8 ounces cabbage sliced
  • 4 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Place the beans in a pot and fill it with water to cover them. Soak the white beans overnight. Or, bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and let stand for one hour. Cook until tender, about 1-2 hours, over low simmering heat. Replace water as needed. Strain in a colander until ready to use.
  • Saute the onion and celery in a large Dutch oven pot with bacon. When the onion is translucent, after 3 minutes, add the cabbage, broth, water, and seasonings. Bring to a boil and lower to a simmer. Add the beans. Cook all together for about 15 minutes or until the cabbage is tender.
  • Serve the soup hot with your favorite bread. Top the soup red pepper flakes and parsley to serve.
