  1. Wow! This was excellent. You would not know there is cabbage in with the onions. I sauted the onion, cabbage, and garlic for more like 30 minutes to really caramelize them together. Used an organic low sodium beef broth and topped with croutons and 5 cheese italian shredded cheese. Perfect for a cool evening any time of year.
  2. We really enjoyed this. It was very rich. More so than you would think. I would eliminate the salt as the broth was salty and I thought the soup was slightly salty. I made my own croutons with some Oroweat Dill Rye bread by cutting into cubes and tossing with olive oil, salt and pepper. I toasted them in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes. I topped the soup with these and Gruyere cheese. This would be a good soup to make for a dinner party.
  3. This made for a very sastisfing meal. I did'nt have beef broth on had so I use a dry onion soup mix and it worked just fine. I also use my wok to cook it in which it did just great. Pehaps waterchestnuts could be added for a bit of a crunch. ed
  4. This soup was very good and I've already had requests to make it again. I accidentally dropped half of the sliced cabbage on the floor beforehand which turned out ok, because it was a large head of cabbage. So a small head or half a large is all you need! Unlike the other reviewer, I could definitely taste the cabbage - which I love - so that was a good thing! I will probably use a variety of onions, not just sweet next time. Topped it off with swiss cheese ezekial toast.
