"I added 1.5 teaspoon of minced garlic and a splash of Worcester sauce and soy sauce. My kids love this soup and I have to give them raw cabbage leaves too, they love the crunch."

"So yummy! Maybe it's because Ilive in the desert but there initially wasn't enough fluid in it . So, I added 4 cups of beef both. I think it was my favorite soup base so far."

"Very very good, I added a couple of tbs. of tomato paste and some Italian seasoning BUT I neglected to cut the recipe in half and now I have enough for an army. Do you think that this could be successfully frozen or would that ruin the taste once it is thawed?"

"I love all things cabbage and this makes a hearty healthy vegan dish - I use vegetable broth and a super size can of petite diced tomatoes - 16 ozs (yep 16) of the peeled baby carrots and 3 medium diced potatoes and season with cumin coriander salt and pepper ALSO THE BINKLEYS CAJUN RECIPE IS KILLER GOOD I don't use the meat but a dash of liquid smoke and the cajun seasonings non vegans can also add a lb of peeled deveined shrimp when it's done they only need to cook about 4 minutes max"
