I followed this recipe pretty much exactly as was written, and it was delicious. A definite keeper without needing to make any changes. The only thing I disagree on is the servings. My husband and I had this for dinner and there is only enough left for lunch tomorrow for one of us. Serving 8 with this as a main dish is stretching it quite a bit. It is too good to share!

Excellent side soup for a light supper. The dill adds an interesting taste that complements the cabbage well. The chicken broth makes the soup rich without adding too many calories.
