    Perfect. I had to swap the beans for chickpeas as that is all i had in my pantry. It was still perfect. For lunch 2 days later it was even better.
    This is delicious 😋

    Delicious Good way to use up all our old vegetables. Nice to have on cold days instead of salad for lunch.

    It was just okay for me. Very generous portions. I used a whole small head of cabbage and ended up not having enough room for all of the potatoes. Next time I will do less cabbage and more potatoes.

    The recipe was right on the money. I usually follow the directions to the letter initially then modify the next time I make the dish. Although I believe I will continue to make this recipe the way it is directed. The meal was tasty / savory and especially satisfying. Me and my family enjoyed every bite!!!

    Great recipe! I’ve already shared it with three or four people and plan to make it again soon. Highly recommend. Easy to make and prep.

    Turned out pretty well, quite tasty but, I can’t help myself! A collar of bacon would have made it a tad tastier!!!

    I loved it but my husband felt it needed some ham to make it more "meal-worthy".

    A wonderful recipe. This is the “chicken soup” of the vegetarian world! Warming, delicious and very healthy. I used freshly chopped tomatoes instead of canned and added a little chopped kale towards the end. And a couple of teaspoons (don’t overdo it!) of balsamic vinegar during the cooking adds a depth that really finishes it off.

    Followed the recipe and both my husband and I think the soup is pretty bland. The recipe makes a lot!

    Turned out great! Not a kid favorite but warmed our grown-up bellies on a cold night! Fabulous way to get your cabbage! The recipe makes a lot of food! We will eat leftovers for a couple of days of lunches, which I love!
