Not at all what I expected. I did not enjoy this at all. It was not very brothy, more like a stew and it had a strange taste. I sliced my cabbage instead of shredding it so I don't know if that was part of the problem. It seemed very starchy and more stewlike than soup. I would not make this again.


THis soup was unfortunately not liked by anyone in the house. I think , the texture is the problem. Shredded cabbage in the soup tastes strange. I pureed the soup and mixed with equal quantity of cooked yellow lentils with some cumin and cayenne. Added finely chopped fresh parseley as well. My husband just loved it and couldn't believe that I used the cabbage soup as base.


This hearty cabbage soup is excellent. I added celery and look forward to trying it again with other vegetables. Bravo
