Yummy! I had cabbage to burn so I was looking for something simple. I made no changes with this recipe. If you do not like caraway seeds this is not for you. The only change I would make is to reduce the carroway seeds. I would start with 1 1/2 tsp. I would make this again.

this was a grrreat soup, savory and buttery tasting, great for cool fall and winter feel good food. I agree with the 1.5 tsp of caraway seeds as well. The only other change I made was to use turkey sausage patties crumbled instead of pork, we don't do pork and this is also a less fattening option. Will do this recipe again and again.

This was great! Everyone here loved it. I substituted 10 oz. cooked 93% lean hamburg for the sausage (personal preference), and the next time I make it I will try 1/2 hamburg & 1/2 TVP. Also, I only used 1.5 tsp. of caraway seeds. This was the perfect amount for us. Everything else was the same as the posted recipe. Thank you for a really great recipe!
