I love cabbage and always try to come up with new ideas for cooking with it; it's a very economical staple in the fall and winter months, thus this recipe. Add any vegetables or meats that you like, this a recipe of great versatility! Serve with garlic bread topped with Italian seasoning. Enjoy!

THis soup was unfortunately not liked by anyone in the house. I think the texture is the problem. Shredded cabbage in the soup tastes strange. I pureed the soup and mixed with equal quantity of cooked yellow lentils with some cumin and cayenne. Added finely chopped fresh parseley as well. My husband just loved it and couldn't believe that I used the cabbage soup as base. Read More

Not at all what I expected. I did not enjoy this at all. It was not very brothy more like a stew and it had a strange taste. I sliced my cabbage instead of shredding it so I don't know if that was part of the problem. It seemed very starchy and more stewlike than soup. I would not make this again. Read More

Great recipe and as Tracy said "versatile!" I added pound of browned lean hamburger but followed everything else. DELICIOUS. I've been asked to make this again and again! Thanks Tracy. Read More

I didn't like this at all.. can't figure out what the problem was because I followed the directions to a "T".. the potatoes were shredded but had a bad taste kind of "boiled" and it smelled bad... Read More

I love all the ingredients by themselves but this combination didn't make it. I think if the broth and the 1/2 1/2 each had an extra 1/2 cup of liquid and the potato was a medium one this might have been more like a soup. I'll try again using my changes and possibly add some caraway or anise seed for additional flavor. Read More

I pretty much made this recipe as written but added more broth. It is not very appetizing looking that's for sure but tasted very good. If I made it again I would add some other veggies or something for color and maybe not shred everything. Read More

Wonderful base soup! I dislike thin "brothy" soups of any kind but this one's nice and hearty much better than most cabbage soups. The tiny bit of sugar really brings out the flavors. I sauteed some polish sausage along with the onion and added some extra veggies. Great for a cold night! Read More

Delicious! Who would have thought apple and cabbage go so well together? But they do:) We're sometimes vegan so I might try it some day with soy milk instead of half-and-half. Read More
