Cabbage and Potato Soup

Recipe by Dotty2

I got this recipe from a friend who found it in the Canadian Living magazine. It is my "special soup" that I serve on special occasions and to guests . Everyone loves it.

Great recipe, even with the changes I made. I wanted a lighter soup, so I used one can of fat free evaporated milk. It was still delicious. I also used brown deli mustard since I discovered I was out of dijon. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. Easy to make, and nice for a change from the usual potato soups I make. When I reheated the leftovers, I added some smoked sausage and that was a good addition. The smoked sausage flavor goes well with the mustard and caraway. Definately a soup I would make again.
