Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

To do in advance: make homemade chicken bone broth


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 6 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 4 cups green cabbage, cut into long, thin lengths (resembling a noodle)
  • 10 cups homemade chicken bone broth (or just enough to cover veggies)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Raw Swiss cheese (optional)


  1. Melt butter over medium to low heat.
  2. Add onions, oregano, carrots and celery. Cook and stir until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken broth, cabbage, salt and pepper and bring the soup just to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Just before serving, put a little bit of grated Swiss cheese to the bottom of each bowl. Pour in the soup and enjoy.
