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!! :-)
Excellent, easy soup!
My husband and I really enjoyed this soup. It was very good.
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.
Mmmmm. From one Albertan to another! It's perfect for that cold windy, winter day!! Left overs have already been spoken for! :)
