This is our traditional Christmas eve meal that my Grandmother serves each year. It is best when boiled, cubed, potatoes or macaroni noodles are added, you pick which one and then give it a try.

Very very easy soup and inexpensive as well. I made my version with oyster mushroms (which are cheaper where I live) and macaroni! Very tasteful!! Will definitely make again! Read More

I didn't really care for this. To me it tasted like watered down sauerkraut with mushrooms. I'm a sauerkraut fan but I won't be making this again. Read More

Used chicken broth instead of water. Used potatoes instead of pasta. The soup was hearty and delicious. We may try beef broth next time. Read More

I thought this was terrific! I changed just a bit. I did potatoes (5 cubed Red potatoes) fry with the onions and garlic. I used one container of veggies broth and no water (I didn't size my pan up.very good and ran out of room). In addition to the other ingredients I added one bag of Boca crumbles. It is delicious! We ate up this batch and will make another batch to freeze some! I am even going to make for my mom and maybe have a new Christmas meal for our family too! Read More
