Well, I was surfing for cabbage recipes- cabbage is cheap and I am broke. I was skeptical about this recipe but had all the ingredients on hand so what the heck? I was surprised- this soup is rather quite yummy and rich tasting. And considering it cost about $2 to make well worth it. I will make it again. I would recommend using a low sodim broth, it came out a bit salty. Read More

I tried this recipe on a whim and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My 12 year old ate 3 bowls (amazing for her!) and my husband said he enjoyed it. I doubt I will make this again unless I use some variation. Read More

What a great soup for a winter meal. I cut up some leftover ham and added that to the pot too. I also had to add salt. Read More

This soup is definitely a keeper. Super easy to make I threw it all in the pot together and let it simmer away. I love how it is low-cal and high-fiber too. Different and tasty. Read More

This was a tasty soup but I did not like the texture of the beans with the soup. Next time I make it I will just add tomato sauce instead of the can of beans. I skipped the direction of cooking the vegetables first and just added them to the broth. Also basal and garlic powder improved the taste of the broth. Read More

This is a great basic recipe with lots of room for customization (different veggies beans etc etc) My biggest problem with making it as written was that it was extremely unappetizing looking. If I were to make it again I would add a bit of color with red potatoes with the skin on carrots bell pepper etc. But anyway this is a great start for a healthy easy and inexpensive meal. Thanks Ruth! Read More
