Cabbage Soup

This soup is really satisfying as a meal. I use "beef" bouillon cubes I purchase online here.

Cabbage Soup

1 pound ground beef
1 pound Italian sweet sausage, casings removed
1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 can chopped tomatoes, drained
1 teaspoon sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1 can black or white soy beans, drained
2 "beef" bouillon cubes
1 head cabbage, chopped
9-10 cups water
salt & pepper

In a large stockpot brown the beef and Italian sausage with the onion, garlic and green pepper, breaking up the sausage. Add the sugar substitute, tomato paste, tomatoes, oregano, parsley and chili powder,beans and salt & pepper to taste.

Dissolve the bouillon cubes in 1 cup water and add to the soup along with the cabbage. Slowly add the amount desired of remaining water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for at least 1 hour.
