    First time making a vegetarian soup. This is a classy soup. Easy to prepare, and oh so healthy. Great with a piece of whole grain bread. The curry gives it a nice little tangy taste - not overpowering, and the dill is sublime. Will be making this again and agian this winter. Thanks again Uncle Bill!

    This recipe has a wonderful combinations of vegetables and grains, making it a great meal! I made as is except to reduce the sodium I used no salt added tomotes and tomatoes, and did not add parmesean cheese (whichis high in sodium. I will definately be making this again!

    I just went digging for this recipe... I didn't save it to a cookbook the first time and my husband has requested it again! It was delicious and made a TON of soup! The '24 servings' is no exaggeration! I barely fit the cabbage in the pot. This made enough soup for my husband & I & the coworker we shared with to enjoy throughout the week. The dill adds a wonderful & remarkable flavor - don't skip out on it!

    So homey and comforting - just the taste I was looking for! We loved it. The barley added a nice toothy texture. I may tinker with it a bit and try homemade noodles instead of the barley sometimes, just for a change. Thanks!

    What a wonderful soup and so easy to make. The curry powder was hiding from me so I used cumin and it was gorgeous. Thanks Uncle Bill. Lucy Scotland
