I thought this was a good base recipe, but was a little disappointed with the flavor. I added turkey (left over from Thanksgiving) and mushrooms just because my hubby likes them. Maybe they took away from the flavor?? It turned out more like a stoup for me too. I loved how easy it was to put together and the smell that filled the house while it was cooking was wonderful! I will be making this again. Thanks for posting.

When I first made this recipe, I only had diced tomatoes with green chilies. I shared the first batch with some friends and they all liked the addition.

Really nice comfort soup recipe. I chose this recipe because I had cabbage I need to use up and some cooked brown rice taking up space int he fridge. I cooked it on the stove, sauteing the veggies before adding the broth and tomato sauce and let it simmer for an hour or so. I wasn't sure how I liked this as I taste tested it, but after it was done cooking and cooled down a bit it grew on me. I thought the dill would be more pronounced and even added a tad more.I left out the diced tomatoes and would choose not to add them next time as well. I could see how this would be a soothing, mild meal if you were feeling under the weather, kind of easy to digest, satisfying and no overwhelming flavors. Thanks for sharing this easy and nutritious recipe.

Made it to recipe but added a lot more water and broth because I planned on crumbling corn bread into it. Delicious...and almost gone already. Will make it again soon!

Easy soup to put together, although after 5 hours on low, my rice was over cooked. The soup was more like a stew because there was not much liquid left. Next time I'll use only 4 cups cabbage and see if that makes a difference. Nice flavour, and I served it with a dollop of sour cream on top!

Very good and easy! I used 7 carrots and for the tomato sauce I used one small can and some tomato paste (less than one can). I also had some chicken broth and vegetable broth in the fridge so used what I had (didn't measure) and instead of the dill used fennel seed. I also used fire-roasted tomatoes and added the can of tomatoes with everything else so it was ready when I walked in the door. Very good and easy too!

I really enjoyed this soup and have enough for about 4 more cups! I used V8 juice instead of tomato sauce, and just used about 1 tsp. dill. I halved the recipe. Thank you so much!

This is an excellent veggie soup. I used three big carrots and three chicken bouillon cubes (along with 29 oz. of water). My DH requested sausage in it next time (he thinks sausage belongs in every dish!), but I liked it just as the recipe describes. I served it with slices of whole wheat bread. Thank you for a great recipe to warm us up on this cold winter night!
