Before going on a diet, consider making red cabbage soup to lose weight. The cabbage soup diet may allow someone to lose weight within seven days. However, don't replace your balanced diet with the soup for the week, as it is important to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Red cabbage soup is known for its rich color and smooth texture. There isn't an official cabbage soup recipe because it varies based on different tastes.
