Easy High Fiber Recipes

This is a great recipe to make for a high fiber light meal. It’s especially good after overindulging a bit during the holiday season, especially when you have great things on the menu like turkey (or Tofurkey), gravy, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.

This soup is a great way to getting your veggies in, as well as some beans for plant-based protein.

What’s In This Cabbage Soup with Beans?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Onion
  • Fresh garlic cloves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Green Cabbage
  • Diced Tomatoes:  I only use no salt added diced tomatoes, these boxed tomatoes are really great to stock up on!
  • Low sodium white beans
  • Reduced Sodium Vegetable Stock or Bouillon: I love this low sodium vegetable base for my recipes because it has a great flavor and is lower in sodium. I only develop my recipes with low sodium ingredients so the ingredients shine.  You can always add salt to a recipe if it needs it, but it’s almost impossible to take it out!  By starting with a low sodium broth or bouillon, you can build bright vibrant flavors and add more salt later if needed.
  • Garlic Salt: for a little extra flavor than traditional salt.  I like to use this garlic salt in my savory Italian dishes for that extra kick.
  • Thyme – I used fresh thyme as we have it growing on our property, but this dried thyme would be a perfect substitute.
  • Parsley
  • Lemon Juice

Using Canned Beans Versus Homemade

While I love the convenience of canned beans, I usually cook dry beans from scratch in my pressure cooker – the texture is better and it’s more affordable.  I use a larger 7.5-Quart Instant Pot which is larger than the standard model so I can batch cook more at a time. 

If you don’t already have one, the Instant Pot works wonders for cooking dried beans fast, no soaking required! While canned beans are super convenient, they are often loaded with sodium.  If you buy canned beans, I always recommend using a no salt added variety so you can control the amount of salt in your dish. 

Next time you reach for the canned beans, think about investing in a pressure cooker instead! Homemade beans are incredibly cost efficient, and you can add seasonings and spices to the beans while they cook for extra flavor.

Make Cabbage Soup Vegan for a Plant-Based Version

This vegan cabbage and bean soup is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family.

    Question: I noticed the celery doesn’t say “chopped” or anything. Are you putting it in whole and taking it out at the end just for flavor?

    P.S. I ended up making a modified version of this recipe, and it came out pretty tasty! I also added a sprinkle of cayenne for a little “oomph” 😛

    1. Hi Angelica, it’s supposed to be ‘chopped’ – thank you for noticing that! I will fix it in the recipe. So glad you enjoyed it, and great idea with the cayenne pepper!
