Reviews for Hearty Cabbage-Sausage Soup
"Delicious! I did make a few changes though...trying to use up leftovers. I added 2 extra cups of broth, 3 diced potatoes, 1 cup of applesauce, and a Tbls. of parsley. We served it over rice as well. Very good flavor in this recipe."
"Easy recipe and very tasty. I followed other reviewer's advice and grilled the sausage and added carrots and garlic powder. No additional salt was needed. I used chicken & apple sausage that is a little spicy but lower in fat. The extra spice in the sausage kicked it up a notch, especially with the added black pepper. Next time I prepare this recipe, if use this same sausage, I will omit the pepper. It was a little too spicy for some family members, but I loved it!"
"Loved this easy recipe! I added 1 cup frozen corn and five diced potatoes for a more "stew-like" meal. I also omitted adding any additional salt until then end, and just to taste. Thanks for a hearty weeknight soup recipe that can be prepared quickly!"
"Good quick soup for supper. As others did, I too doubled and browned the sausage and decreased the salt. This'll be a keeper! Even hubby, who is not wild about cabbage, enjoyed this soup."
"5 stars. Have made this numerous times over the years since it was published. Excellent!"
"Great recipe (Can you say "Comfort Food"). I took other reviewers advise and used less then 1/2 the salt that was called for. sprinkled in a little garlic powder and magically I had a great bowl of soup. Will definitely make again."
"Awesome soup-everyone loved it and so easy,small amount of ingredients, A keeper! I used smoked turkey sausage to make it heart healthy-worked great!"
"Very easy meal to prepare. The simple few ingredients make a fantastic flavorful dinner. Great man's meal, the fellas in my family love this soup."
"This was surprisingly tasty for such a simple recipe! I used turkey sausage and added 2 sliced carrots with the cabbage and that added a little sweetness. Also tossed in some red pepper flakes per another reviewer's suggestion and some garlic powder. I only added a 1/2 tsp. salt and I thought I could have added even less--but I think it depends on what kind of broth you're using. Great recipe!"
