After doing yard work on a windy day, we love to come in for a light but hearty soup like this one. It's brimming with cabbage, veggies and white beans. Pass the crusty bread. —Jennifer Stowell, Smithville, MO

"I made this last night and it was fantastic. I added a chub of mild sausage and used half chicken, half beef stock and a couple cups of water because the final broth mixture was so concentrated. I cooked mine on the stove simply because time got away from me. I had one tiny cup left after feeding just 3 people. This is going in the keeper file."

"I don't know how this won a contest. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was terrible. It was more the consistency of stew than soup, and weirdly all the same color. And it smelled like Sharpie markers. Skip this recipe! there are plenty of good ones, just not this."
