Reviews for Country Cabbage Soup
"This is fantastic! I added V8 Juice as well. Yum!!!"
"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 added 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 carrot, grated zuchinni and beef boullion."
"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"
"OH SOO GOOD. My husband said to add this to my soup list. I cut the recipe in half as there are only 2 of us. I also added one can of beef broth, some cooked small pasta and two packets of beef seasoning from ramen noodles for more flavor. Will make this again for sure."
"I tried Cajoun Cabbage Soup at a diner in northern Michigan over the summer. I used this recipe as a base to try and make it at home. We added diced carrot, chunks of browned smoked sausage with minced garlic and Creole seasoning - delicious!!!"
"I have made this for a small group a couple of times and received rave reviews from almost all who ate it... Comfort food which brought back many memories from childhood. With rice added it reminds me of my mother's "Lazy Man's Cabbage Rolls"... soupified!"
"I have made this soup many times and everyone has raved about it. When I bring it to gatherings everyone compliments me and some want to take some home. The only thing I add is some vegetable broth for a little extra liquid."
"My mother and I truly enjoyed this recipe and made it again within 2 days. I used only 1 lb of ground turkey instead. Ummm soooo good."
"Really liked this recipe...I did add fresh garlic...added 2 small finely chopped cloves to the beef as it was browning. Also added lots of fresh ground pepper and a little salt. A real comfort soup on a chilly night down here in the south!!"
