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.
