This veggie-loaded, high-fiber soup is more satisfying than traditional cabbage soup because of the addition of beans and turkey sausage. It also freezes well, so freeze half and use it during a busy week when you don’t have much time to cook.

    Does this really use 9 cans of beans?

    This soup was delicious! I really loved it. But I like cabbage a lot. I added more veggies and packed the soup and it was great.
