I used spicy v8 and added hot sauce and omitted the soup mix and instead added sodium free beef bouillon powder (to taste, didn't really measure). The cabbage makes this soup nice and filling so it is a good diet meal.

Good and Easy! I used a bag of coleslaw for the cabbage and follwed directions...Did add a boullion cube (beef) while the water was boiling. After cooking for 10 min. on the stove, I transferred to the crockpot on low and added some V8 so that I would have some for later....TY!

Cabbage and V-8 juice are two of my favorite foods so I'm not surprised that this particular recipe is one of my favorites. What's nice is that you can use your imagination to add a little boiled chicken, carrots, or your favorite bean or lentil of choice if you find yourself wanting a little change. Since I'm cutting calories trying to lose 30 pounds and don't care much for meat this 'vegetarian 'recipe works great. I did add extra boullion which seemed to make the soup liquid taste more like a meat broth instead of vegetable juice.
