Yummy, yummy. I did not process the cabbage and potatoes as I wanted to taste the chunks in my soup. Otherwise, I made no changes and this is so very quick and easy.

@Egoins777 Sounds delicious! Thanks for the suggestions!br -- FaveHealthyRecipes Editor

I make a similar soup but use many more potatoes than listed in this recipe. I also perfer more texture, so I don't puree it all. Add white pepper & crispy, crumbled bacon, if you like.

Hello myatochi, Since this was a reader submitted recipe it's possible that they just specified less potato on preference. Anyone making this recipe is more than welcome to try adding more. I'd suggest doubling the amount of potato to start. Thanks for the comment.

the quantities of 1/4 potato and 3 cups of cabbage seem lopsided. please check and verify that these measurements are correct. thanks.

@luvcobaalt37 6170387: This recipe would be just as tasty with more potato. If you end up tweaking this, let us know how it turns out! - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

Should the 14 cup of potato, be a larger quantity like 3 or 4 cups, Thank you
