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!Reply
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!Reply
