Wow, there are some really great flavors here! Love that it's low calorie and low fat, means we can eat as much as we want without the guilt. Much better than WW cabbage soup. I used yellow onion, chicken stock for the water, and orange peel for the lemon zest, but otherwise made as directed including the smoked paprika. Deliciously different and this will make a great addition to our winter-warm-me-up soups. Might even add some meatballs next time because DH said it's tastes like stuffed cabbage. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
