Dunking Cabbage Soup

Dunking Cabbage Soup

In today’s current state, it’s essential that I use my platform to support brands that are actively supporting my community. Now that we are all working to stand in solidarity and unite as a country, I expect nothing less than that from larger brands like Aldi, H-E-B, and Kroger. The outpouring of support from the latter two has been cool, but Aldi has some work to do. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Aldi and support them anyway. I just think it would be refreshing to see a bit more diversity on their platform. I know my people love “ALDIS” (that’s how Black folks say it, lol) just as much as do (mini-rant).

Ok, now let’s get back to the situation at hand – my Dunking Cabbage Soup Recipe. It’s delicious Asian Inspired, low carb, and full of veggies. It’s the perfect soup to overindulge on. What makes this soup super irresistible is that I chose to use the super thin cabbage in place of your typical noodles. BE SMART GIRL!!!! Continue reading for the recipe!



  • 1 lb Chicken Thighs

Other protein options:

  • Shrimp
  • Ground pork
  • Ground turkey
  • Chicken breast

*Select four of five of your favorite options or unload your entire veggie bin on them boys as I did.  

Add these veggies first:

  • 1 White Onion (chopped)
  • 1 Green Onion (chopped)
  • 1 Poblano Pepper (seeded and chopped)
  • 1/4 cup white mushrooms (chopped)

Add the following veggies towards the end:

  • 1 Zucchini (chopped)
  • 1 Yellow Squash (chopped)
  • 1 Radish (chopped)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1 arm of ginger  (finely chopped)
  • 6 cups of Cold Water (enough to cover ingredients)
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of oil to sauté your veggies
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste)

Dipping cabbage

  • 1 head of cold cabbage (thinly sliced lengthwise)


In a large pot, sauté your vegetables in order, as indicated above. I started with my mushrooms, white onions, and a few green onions. Add water and season to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic. let simmer for about ten minutes. (*note: you want your broth to be well seasoned. I use water so that I can control the level of sodium. If you opt for a veggie or chicken broth, just be careful of over-salting.)

Add your protein and cook until tender

Add your finishing veggies

Serve with green onion garnish

Keep cold until ready to DUNK !!
