Of all the miracle soups out there, this recipe for the Best Cabbage Soup is crunchy, savory, and never, ever bland. It’s a perfect post-holiday meal, full of complex flavors and surprising textures, and seriously good for you.
In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add turnip, carrot, onion, and celery, and cook until softened, about 10 minutes.
Add broth, cabbage, apple, bay leaves, and 1 teaspoon dill. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove bay leaves and stir in pickle or lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with sour cream and more fresh dill if desired.
