Very filling, yummy soup. We had some red cabbage in the garden we needed to use up and couldn't find a recipe that didn't use vinegar and/or apples that left a "pickled" taste. This one sounded perfect. We added a can of dark kidney beans and a can of mixed veggies for a little more color and variety but otherwise made as directed. Will make this again.
