  1. I thought this was a good base recipe, but was a little disappointed with the flavor. I added turkey (left over from Thanksgiving) and mushrooms just because my hubby likes them. Maybe they took away from the flavor?? It turned out more like a stoup for me too. I loved how easy it was to put together and the smell that filled the house while it was cooking was wonderful! I will be making this again. Thanks for posting.
  2. When I first made this recipe, I only had diced tomatoes with green chilies. I shared the first batch with some friends and they all liked the addition.
  3. Really nice comfort soup recipe. I chose this recipe because I had cabbage I need to use up and some cooked brown rice taking up space int he fridge. I cooked it on the stove, sauteing the veggies before adding the broth and tomato sauce and let it simmer for an hour or so. I wasn't sure how I liked this as I taste tested it, but after it was done cooking and cooled down a bit it grew on me. I thought the dill would be more pronounced and even added a tad more.I left out the diced tomatoes and would choose not to add them next time as well. I could see how this would be a soothing, mild meal if you were feeling under the weather, kind of easy to digest, satisfying and no overwhelming flavors. Thanks for sharing this easy and nutritious recipe.
  4. Made it to recipe but added a lot more water and broth because I planned on crumbling corn bread into it. Delicious...and almost gone already. Will make it again soon!
  5. Easy soup to put together, although after 5 hours on low, my rice was over cooked. The soup was more like a stew because there was not much liquid left. Next time I'll use only 4 cups cabbage and see if that makes a difference. Nice flavour, and I served it with a dollop of sour cream on top!


  1. Very good and easy! I used 7 carrots and for the tomato sauce I used one small can and some tomato paste (less than one can). I also had some chicken broth and vegetable broth in the fridge so used what I had (didn't measure) and instead of the dill used fennel seed. I also used fire-roasted tomatoes and added the can of tomatoes with everything else so it was ready when I walked in the door. Very good and easy too!


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
