.~*``So simple and so good!``*~. I did not have fresh thyme so had to use dried.
I didnt have chicken broth on hand, I used vegetarin cubes. Also, didnt have fresh thyme, I used 1 t. dried, used it when cooking the potatoes. I found this to be a very comforting and very tasty soup. Oh, and I used kale instead of cabbage. While eating it, I was thinking a person could use spinach as well in the recipe. Will be making again, for sure. mollywally :)
