Good one even for cold nights in Toronto.

I made this soup and Brenda's "Homemade Bread" today for dinner. Both were great. I used homemade tomato juice and it was too tart for my taste so I added a can of tomato soup plus a can of water. That toned down the tartness, but, now it had too much tomato taste. So I added a can of chicken broth. I also put a big clove of garlic through a garlic press and added that too. That did the trick for me. I simmered it for about two and a half hours because I wanted it thicker. Today was a very cold day and it hit the spot.

I made this for my husband and it is now a favorite. Perfect comfort food for a cold day. I left out the cabbage and added the following spices parsley, basil, oregano, worcestershire and a couple of bay leafs. Thank you for posting.

Made this for dinner last night, and well . . I had to jazz the flavor up a bit. It was a little too bland for my family, so I added (to already inclusive 46 ounce V-8 juice) two cups of Spicy Hot V-8, two T. of Pickapeppa sauce and 1/2 cup quick pearl barley. Next time, I will add an extra 1/2 lb. of hamburger, and 4 potatoes instead of three. I had made some classic white bread in the bread machine, served it with this soup, and man o'man, was it ever good!! It was a great supper, and I'll definitely make it again! Thanks, Bob Ross!! :-)

We thought this was a good basic soup. Hearty and filling. Would add a little more seasoning such as garlic and herb--thyme maybe. Thanks.

This is a very nice, simple soup. I only put one-third the amount of tomato juice called for, and substituted water for the remaining liquid. Also, I used veggie crumbles instead of hamburger meat because we try to eat mostly vegetarian meals.

This was great. I didn't have tomato juice so used two cups of home frozen tomatos and an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. I cooked in the crock pot and added some dumplings. Yum. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
