"An easy and delicious weekday meal; just throw the ingredients in your slow cooker in the morning and come home to a hot and ready meal. I find it difficult to keep my roommate from sneaking scoops before dinner! If you are watching your sodium intake, use reduced or no-sodium broth and you are set! Recipe serves 6 as a reasonable size main dish, just add buns or biscuits to make it a full meal."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Place cabbage, rutabaga, orzo pasta, onion, garlic, dill, water, and vegetable broth in a slow cooker.
  2. Cover the cooker and cook on Low until vegetables are tender and soup is thickened, 5 to 9 hours.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For extra ease: use pre-chopped garlic and powdered/cubed broth. If using powdered broth, increase the water to 8 cups and just throw in the powder.
  • Also consider throwing all of the ingredients (minus water and prepared broth) into the crock of your slow cooker the night before and keep it in the fridge overnight. Then just add water and turn on your slow cooker when you wake up in the morning.
  • Extra delicious with homemade biscuits. This soup should freeze well, though it has never lasted long enough in my house for me to try it!
  • Feel free to substitute barley or rice in the place of orzo.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
