    What you need
    Serves 20

    • 1 ½ pounds mild Italian sausage, loose
    • 1 large yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
    • 2 teaspoons garlic, chopped
    • 4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into ¼” rounds
    • 1 head green cabbage, core removed and shredded
    • 3 large tomatoes, diced
    • 2 teaspoons sea salt (plus more as needed)
    • fresh ground black pepper (about 5 cracks)
    • 1 teaspoon ground sweet paprika


    1. Brown the sausage at the bottom of a large soup pot over medium high heat, breaking it into small pieces as it browns. Remove the cooked sausage from the pot and set aside in a bowl, leaving the oil from the sausage in the pot.
    2. Add the onions, garlic and carrots to the pot with the hot oil. Continue to cook over medium high heat, stirring often as the veggies become tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cabbage and tomatoes, and continue to cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Mix in the remaining ingredients and bring the soup to a low simmer for 20 minutes.
    3. Add more salt and pepper to taste and serve hot. Enjoy!
