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!"
"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."
"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!"
"I added a little carrot (cooked with cabbage) and doubled the amount of sausage, which I browned first. Needed less salt than the recipe called for, probably because of the extra sausage I added. My family loved it!"
"Kids and hubby enjoyed this. Very easy to make!"
"<p>I am always hesitant to try new recipes that involve Cabbage (even more so with soups). But this is great! So easy to make, too. I also added just a small pinch of Red Pepper Flakes to add a little more flavor. Definitely a keeper and will make this again.</p>"
"I am going to double the recipe next time."
"Great! easy, fast and simple. Added 1 lb. of sausage. A keeper."
"My husband and I loved this recipe! We thought it was ever better the next day. We will definitely make this soup again...."
"I have made this soup twice. The first time I was skeptical. We liked it so much we make it again. Very good with crackers. I also used 1 lb. of sausage."
"We love this recipe. I make it with a large head of cabbage and 1 lb of smoked sausage."
"Excellent! Just made it and it is definite keeper!"
"I haven't cooked much with cabbage before, and I wasn't sure how my family would react to this recipe. Amazingly, my kids both devoured it. My 7-year-old had seconds and my 9-year-old even asked for thirds! Great, budget-friendly recipe. Thanks so much."
