Great recipe! Makes a very large pot.... I put it in individual containers for ease of heating up throughout the week for lunch and dinner. I omitted the bell peppers and only added a couple onions. Making it again this week and using low sodium tomatoes and V8.

I was skeptical, but this really is great! I wanted to add carrots, but stopped myself, thinking there must be a dietary reason for their absence (too much starch and sugar?). I used Spicy V-8 and followed monday night gal's suggestion, adding nutmeg (and ginger and savory). Very tasty "diet medicine"! Thank you for posting the original recipe, Spyder-man.

Pretty Tasty! I added some peas, corn, carrots, and lima beans to mine along with the rest of the veggies. i also added some beef broth and a little cayenne jalapeno hot sauce for some kick. Turned out pretty good.

Yum! I varied some of the amounts (less onion, less canned tomato, added some carrots), and I made it in the crock pot. It's really good! Especially with a little bit of hot sauce mixed in - I like a few drops of sriracha. I always want to eat light lunches during the holidays, to keep from gaining too much weight, but who wants to eat salads in the middle of winter?? This soup is great for this time of year, and so inexpensive, too.

I was so lerry that this soup might be too acidic but much to my surprise, it was good. The balsamic vinegar was great. I only used one large onion....should I have really used 6 onions AND the bunch of green onions? I'll definitely make it again and I think I'll try roasting the veggies too before I add them to the soup. My husband liked it too even though he knew I made it as a way to drastically reduce my caloric intake.

Good recipe, however I think I will cut the balsamic vinegar in half, it was a bit too tangy. Only thing I did different was add a cup of corn. It simmered for about an hour and the veggies were just tender but still firm. Thanks for a good rainy day soup recipe!

Very good! I only had two onions and no bouillon or onion soup and it still turned out great. If anyone is looking for the 7-day eating plan you can get it at http://www.cabbage-soup-diet.com/eating-plan.html Thanks for posting, I hoping this will help take off my last 5 baby pounds!

Am I missing something? It seems like this recipe should have included adding water? My soup turned out more like stew...
