Using up leftovers

I had a half head of napa cabbage and some leftover sausage in my fridge last night and I was wondering what the heck I was going to make for dinner after spending the last five hours peeling and coring apples for apple pie filling and apple chutney. Well, here's what I came up with:
It was yummy!
Cabbage and Potato Soup


  • 2 or 3 tblsp olive oil

  • 1/2 head napa cabbage thinly sliced

  • 3 large potatoes sliced in 1/4 inch pieces, peel on

  • 1/2 lb cooked pork sausage (I used Gourmet Signature roasted red bell pepper and carmelized onion sausage)

  • 1 can black eyed peas drained and rinsed

  • 1 small yellow onion thinly sliced

  • 4 cloves garlic chopped

  • 5 cups chicken stock

  • 1 tbsp Mexican oregano

  • 1 tsp dried marjoram

  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • pinch of allspice

  • Parmesan cheese



  1. Heat olive oil

  2. Add chopped potatoes and large pinch of salt and cook on medium high covered until softened, about 8 minutes. Stir occasionally.

  3. Stir in onion and garlic. Cook until onion starts to turn clear.

  4. Add stock, canned black eyed peas, cooked sausage and spices. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

  5. Stir in chopped cabbage and cook until it has softened, about 10 more minutes.

  6. Salt to taste. You'll need more or less depending on whether you used homemade or canned stock.

  7. Serve up topped with Parmesan cheese.

  8. This is a hearty soup and is great with some crusty bread. It makes great leftovers, as we found it tasted even better the next day.

Hi Kim.
Great idea for leftovers! I love cabbage and beans soup, very tradicional here in Portugal. Sometimes I even add small pasta. Interesting... you fry it first.

I agree, this type of soups taste better in the next day.
I also hate throwing food away, when I can´t find a solution, I feed the abandoned cats in my street.
It´s a pleasure to exchange links with you. I´ll visit you more often. Cheers!

Do you think this would taste OK with regular cabbage? I know it gets stinky if over cooked.

Hi Lisa,
Yes, I think regular cabbage would work just fine. Thank you for stopping by Omnivores.
