    First Florida fall cold (don’t laugh, it feels cold to us!) day and this was perfect post-baseball practice. Delicious!

    1. So sorry! We had a website glitch. Should be back now and ready for you! Enjoy & thank you for bearing with us!

    so delicious and simple to make! I made this with Italian turkey sausage and purple cabbage and it turned out amazing, my 14 month old especially loved it!

  3. 5 stars
    Made this soup yesterday for meal prep. I made it exactly as directed. Had it for lunch today and it is SO GOOD! I love that a serving is a large portion too. Very filling and full of healthy goodness. This will definitely be a repeat during soup season!

  4. 5 stars
    I whipped up a pot of this using shredded chicken/vegetable broth instead of pork/beef broth. It will be a new staple in my kitchen. I work around a lot of food sensitivities and it is so nice to have a comforting and tasty soup in the rotation.

  5. I made this tonight using shredded Brussels sprouts instead of the cabbage. My daughter gobbled it up, which is a total win!

  6. 5 stars
    This soup was delicious and even better the next day for lunch! I used purple cabbage since that’s what I had on hand and turned out perfect, so flavorful – tasted just like an egg roll, minus the icky fried shell! Highly recommend!

    1. A few different kinds could work well here, ranging from a white button mushroom or crimini mushroom, to a shitaki or a portobello.

    Made it for lunch this afternoon, could not have been pleased more!! Had to use olive oil (couldn’t find avocado oil) and used lime juice – Perfect – Already printed recipes for my daughters, and some group texts – Keep meals like this coming!
