      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.

      I am not sure how to rate this....I will give it a 3 with a possible 4 stars when I make it again. You do not give enough detail on the paprika. There are two kinds of Hungarian paprika, sweet and hot. Both of them are smoked. So not sure what you mean by sweet and smoked. I used sweet and hot. I think I should have used just sweet. It had a huge kick. Also, the vinegar was way too much so I doubled the honey. I am thinking of using just plain white vinegar. I think that would be more authentic. All in all, it is a good base. Will make again with the changes I talked about.

      Very good soup and only 2 ww points plus soup! I made a few changes by using coleslaw mix instead of just cabbage, fennel seed and dill weed instead of caraway seed and using 1 large can of tomatoes crushed instead of the puree and canned tomatoes. The remainder will go in the freezer for lunches. Thanks for sharing!
