I used your recipe version to make my first batch of cabbage soup for my diet. Deelish! I just added one pack of onion soup mix, some chicken breast (I need the protein), and bay leaves, rosemary, and red pep sprinkled in. It's soooo good that I think this will become a regular recipe, not just a diet recipe. Thanks!
