Too spicy

I made cabbage soup and I got it too spicy with pepper and cajun seasoning. How can I tone it down?

In broth based soups, taming peppers can be a challenge. You can sometimes counter it with a bit of sweetness, either with sugar or honey. But a better way may be to add an acid, in the form of a vinegar or lemon juice. You can also opt to remove some of the broth and the solids to another pot and add in fresh broth to dilute it.

Let it sit over night first and then see what you think.
