I have made this soup over the years. The salt can be adjusted to taste, you can use less. Last time made, I added 2 additional cups of water while cooking.

Good soup! We soup lovers like the variety we get by trying new soup recipes to add variety to our meals. Made as posted with no changes needed. Love the parsnip and the cabbage combined with the rest of the ingredients. A great supper soup on one of those chilly days we had back in September. Served mini breads made with French Tart's recipe#340621.Saved to my Soup Cookbook.
