"I made up this recipe after having a craving for cabbage rolls but no time to make them. This is a healthy, hearty recipe. So simple to make and can be adjusted to your liking. You can easily double the recipe and freeze leftovers in portions. Serve piping hot with crusty bread or garlic toast."

There is an error in the number of servings. This recipe will actually makes a huge pot of soup, about 8-10 servings. Of course this will change the nutritional information as well and therefore makes it much healthier than originally stated. Hope you enjoy it!
Yes, this recipe did need about 3 additional cups of water to make it soup. I also had to add more spices (oregano, basil, worcestershire sauce and minced garlic) in order to give it more flavor. The concept is good but you need to be creative to give it more flavor.
I felt like having cabbage rolls but did not feel like doing all of the work....this was a great alternative! I used homemade pasta sauce and I browned the onions with the meat and added minced garlic to the meat as well. When it was finished cooking I added a few dashes of hot sauce just to give it some kick. Will def add this into my rotation of recipes! Thanks
This is a good hearty soup! I did tweak it after reading some reviews. I browned the meat with the onions and seasoned it with black pepper, salt and garlic. I only used half of the pasta sauce and added a can of diced tomatoes. I also added some celery salt after I mixed it all together. Simple recipe and my boyfriend loved it!!!
I'm a sad momma with this recipe tonight. For starters, it has not where near enough water to make it a soup. Secondly, almost no flavor, I had to add TONS of salt, and Herbs de Provance, and a bunch of other spices just to make it edible. Thirdly, Hubby and I agreed that it was far to acidic. And finally, it scorched in the "bring to a boil" step. It would have been nice if someone had mentioned to stir often. I know I should have just known to do this, but a little reminder would have saved a whole pot of food.
I did cut the rice down to 1 cup and upped the water in the soup to 5 cups from the 2 cups the recipe called for. Tasted very close to cabbage rolls. I would try maybe adding more meat and maybe adding a pork/beef/veal mix like I would when I do Cabbage Rolls. Makes lots of a very thick soup.
Even the kids and dad liked this one!!
I really enjoyed this soup! It taste just like cabbage rolls and is very hearty and filling. I agree with the serving suggestions but I would say it is more like 10 to 12 servings because it is so thick and filling. I found it almost too thick and I would add a little more water next time to give it more of a soup texture. It is a great recipe and I will definitely be making it again.
