Directions 9 steps | 50 Minutes

Step 1

In a large Dutch oven or a heavy-bottomed pot, heat the avocado or olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 4-5 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in the diced onion and grated carrot. Cook until the carrot and onions are tender, about 3-4 minutes.

Step 3

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, less than 1 minute.

Step 4

Add the tomato paste and cook until toasted, about 2-3 minutes.

Step 5

Stir in the crushed and diced tomatoes, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pot.

Step 6

Stir in thyme, paprika and Worcestershire sauce.

Step 7

Stir in the green cabbage, chicken stock and rice. Bring the soup to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low and bring the soup to a simmer. Cover the pot and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes or until the cabbage is tender and the rice is fully cooked. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 8

While the stuffed cabbage soup is simmering, make the garlicky yogurt sauce. In a small bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, grated garlic, lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, black pepper and finely chopped dill. Stir until well combined. 

Step 9

Ladle into soup bowls, top with a dollop of the garlicky yogurt sauce and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!


Notes:

  1. Ground beef can be easily substituted with ground chicken, turkey, Italian turkey sausage or Italian chicken sausage.
