    This is one of hubby's favorites and mine too! I leave out the garlic because hubby doesn't like it but it is not missed. I use Better Than Bouillon chicken broth paste (no MSG) and sometimes V8 juice. When I use broth I add cream or half and half upon serving. For some reason, dairy really brings out the flavor even more when combined with most soups than contain chicken broth. When adding V8, try also adding rice, noodles, ravioli or tortellini, or even orzo. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese is great with the V8 version too. The same V8 version is also great when adding cooked ground chuck.

    Simple ingredients come together to make a stellar soup. Just delightful for a simple supper with crusty bread. Cabbage is so underrated and under used....the sweetness it brings is a lovely counterpoint in this savory soup.

    First cold day in St. Louis and made this delicious soup. I went a little overboard on thyme but otherwise awesome. Added string beans and corn too. Soon gooood.

    We absolutely love this soup. The first time I made it I added some ham and it was wonderful. Forgot the vinegar, so don't know if I am missing out on something or not. It is one of our favorite soups and perfect for a cold winter night!

    made this tonight and was great! I used one less leek and one more carrot. Do like the directions say and add plenty of salt and pepper. Has a very light note of sweetness

    Just made this and I'm eating it now. One of those moments where I could have ordered take out or made something good for myself. I chose this and I'm so glad I did. I didn't use all the liquid as suggested just because I know I like mine with a bit less liquid than normal. I also cut up the celery leaves and put those in close to the end. Great, quick soup!

    OMG! This is the best cabbage soup I've ever had! Even without the leeks, it was so tasty. I can't wait to serve this to my parents who are soup lovers. You can never go wrong with a Martha Stewart recipe.
