Very good, and very easy! I knew it was a hit when my husband said "Next time we make this..." and suggested adding carrots for color. We didn't have dill, but it was delicious anyway. We'll definitely make this one again.

Absolutely loved this soup. Made it 3 times in the past 3 weeks! I made it as written 1st. The next times I doubled the cabbage, celery, potatoes, and sour cream, and also added kielbosa. I did as one review mentioned and threw it all in the pot without sauteing. Thank you for sharing such a simple and yummy soup!

Thank you for a wonderful soup! I did add some bacon that I fried up and used some of that grease instead of butter and added some diced red pepper, l carrot diced, and roasted garlic which I had in the fridge and needed to use. I did cut the dill down a little for DH and added some red pepper flakes for our tastes (we like a little zip). This is one recipe I will definately make again!

We're soup lovers, and this one is a keeper. I didn't add potatoes, we're trying to lower our carbs. Instead I put in a few diced carrots and a cup of diced rutabaga. The dill flavor was so good! I'll make this again. Thanks Rick!

This recipe far exceeded my expectations! It had amazing flavor and even impressed my boyfriend who didn't want to try it at first because it had "a bunch of swimmy green stuff" in it. The only incentive he had to try it was the turkey kielbasa I had put in with it (needed to use it up and wanted some sort of meat in there). The kielbasa was a lovely flavor addition (I pan-fried it without any oil and de-glazed the pan with some of the chicken stock before adding it into the soup). I was surprised at how beautifully the dill worked with the kielbasa. I also added about a teaspoon of garlic powder and ended up using the whole head of cabbage (maybe like 4 cups shredded?) so I also doubled the flour and sour cream. Sooooo good. Thanks for a definite keeper!!!

I'm on WW Core program so I made a slight change and used barley instead of potatoes. This soup is delicious and will definitely be made again.

This was really good. I did make a few changes. I added an extra cup of cabbage (coleslaw mix actually, so cabbage with a little carrot in it), added a cup of chopped rutabaga, only used 2 potatoes, and used a teaspoon of dried dill instead of fresh. I also used 3 cups of homemade tomato soup with an extra couple of tablespoons of seasoned tomato paste and 4 cups of chicken stock because I made the tomato soup yesterday and wasn't overly impressed with it on it's own (too much like broth), but it made a great base for this soup. All in all, it was really more like soup that happened to have a little cabbage in it than cabbage soup, so I think next time I might double the cabbage. I'll also make it more as directed by making with 3 potatoes instead of partially replacing with rutabaga because I liked it, but DH didn't especially care for the rutabaga.

This was a great recipe for our first good rain in many years. I think next time we will add more cabbage, a little ham and maybe some cilantro. Thank you Rick!
