  1. Really tasty soup! I served with French bread, but no rice. There are only two of us, so I halved the recipe and have enough left over for two more meals! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Delicious and satisfying, just what I was craving! I halved the recipe and it still made a ton. I used ground turkey breast, added a little molasses as it simmered, only because the tomatoes tastes slightly metallic to me. Also I served without the rice. I really should keep a pot of this in the fridge since it so healthy and would help curb hunger without a lot of calories. Thanks for sharing a keeper recipe!
  3. This makes a lot. I didn't have green pepper so I didn't add that and used a bag of slaw mix instead of the cabbage. Other then those two changes, I followed the recipe as written. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It was easy to make. I also warmed it up for lunch the next day. Even after hubby ate four bowls, me two and another for lunch, we still had about half the pot to freeze for future meals.
  4. I made this recipe this past Friday. My family absolutely loved it so much we ate it the next day too! It does make alot and I'm going to pack whats left and freeze for another day. I will be making this again.
