Stuffed Cabbage Stoup

"I was watching Rachael Ray the other day and wanted to save this recipe. It sounds delish! Update: I have since made this stoup since posting and I really love it. The flavor of the coriander and paprika are delicious. One thing I did that Rachael suggested on the show is to actually add the rice to each bowl when you serve it. That way it won't soak up all the broth, particularly when you have leftovers. That is, if you have leftovers!"

    I was not impressed which is unusual because I generally like Rachael Ray's recipes. I found it to be too brothy and not loaded with flavor.

    I have made this several times and I love it! It reminds me of stuffed cabbage rolls that my mother and grandmother use to make!

    Saw this on Rachael Ray's show, too, and meant to check for the recipe on their web site but forgot. I was so glad when I found it here. This was really delicious. I left out the dill due to personal taste. Thanks for the great recipe.
