A hearty soup for those cold winter days. The sweet potatoes and carrots mellow the cabbage and make a smooth, comforting soup.

I thought is was great and so did my family. I did use apple cider instead of wine and spicy Italian sausage instead of bratwurst and 6 black peppercorns instead of white pepper....So in short I used this recipe as a framework and filled in the white spaces with whatever I had on hand but like I said we thought is was great.

I made this recipe exactly as written and was disappointed in the lack of contrasting flavors in this soup. The seasoning was adequate but the sweet potato and carrot were too similar. If I try it again I'll substitute an alternative for the carrot to improve the appearance and variation in texture. Read More

I substituted frozen Italian-style turkey meatballs for the bratwurst - because I had them and they re a more heart-friendly ingredient. It was delicious. I added 1/2 to 1 C. of extra water to tone the strength and make a better soup consistency. It was delicious! Read More

I just finished a big bowl of this and some beer bread and it was delicious. I used turkey smoked sasuage because that was in the freezer and browned it first. This recipe would be dellicious with almost any combo of veggies but the ones in the recipe are good enough for me. I have leftovers and I am very happy! Read More

I made this recipe substituting white wine with sherry cooking wine cut the bratwurst in half since that's all I had on hand used 1 sweet potato and 1 white potato and added 1 cup apple juice along with the broth. Then I sprinkled in just a bit of cajun seasoning. It is delicious and definitely one to make again and again! Read More

I used yams instead of sweet potatoes because that's all the grocery store had I browned the turkey bratwurst even though the recipe doesn't say anything about it and I only used 1/4 cup rice cooking wine because it was the first time I'd ever used it and I was worried about not liking it. I had to almost double the broth to keep it a soup instead of a stew but I thought it turned out great! The flavors and spices mixed very nicely; makes a very good fall/winter soup. This recipe will definitely be made again although I don't know if I'm going to increase the amount of wine from 1/4 cup that I used to 1/2 cup that it calls for... I like it just the way I made it so much! Read More

If you are looking for consistency color and flavor you will have to increase your flavor to taste. Bouillon cubes (chicken and beef) fresh herbs garlic red onion and substituting corn for carrots. Takes good to great! Read More

I make something very similar to this with great results. Instead of the other seasonings try adding cajon season to taste. Read More
