dry onion soup mix is made with beef broth, that is what makes it brown. you might want to find a vegetarian onion soup instead.
Its not necessarily true about the dry soup mix, check the ingredients. I have a store brand and it has hydrolyzed soy and caramel coloring, no beef. If you were to make onion soup from scratch the color would come from the caramelized onion, not beef broth.
Wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be. Too salty,no one finished their bowl.
This is one of the better cabbage soups. There is a lot of flavor and great balance of flavor. Also love the healthiness and low calories. Made as written cutting in half and was thrilled to see it came out thick more like a stew consistency. Next time will make full batch and freeze half. Thanks so much for the post.
Very good and filling soup. I divided the ingredients by half and put everything in a crockpot - on low for 8 hours. Delicious with bread and butter. Made for Veg'n Tag October 2009. Thanks for sharing!
I love cabbage soup, so I knew this would be a WINNER. I have had it on the to do list for about 4 months now! I threw all the ingredients in a crock pot (plus 1 zucchini for good measure) and turned it on auto and let it do it's thing. I accidentally put in a bit more red pepper flakes so mine has quite a kick but it was great like that. Served along side Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread (Abm) for a great vegetarian dinner this fine Monday. Recipenapped for Veg*n Tag Sept 2009. UPDATE: This soup is even MORE delish on day 2!!! I admit that I added some tomato sauce to decrease the heat a bit and to thicken up the soup (we like our soups to be "stoups"). AWESOME recipe.
This soup gives a lot. But I'll have enough for my lunches at work for the week LOL I made a few changes. I omitted the garlic. I used 4 cups of water, and no vegetable broth, cause instead of tomato juice, I used a 56 ounces of garden cocktail juice. So it has a lot of flavours with that. And I didn't add more seasoning. No salt was needed. I used grated cabbage cause I had some in the fridge. It's very healthy and tastes great. Thanks Katzen. Made for Holiday tag
The recipe was a little too sweet for my tastes. I would probably use fewer carrots next time. We ended up adding a few potatoes. That, and letting it sit until the next day helped mellow the flavors.
