As the temperatures begin to get cooler, I start to think about big pots of hearty-delicious soups! This Cabbage and Beef Soup is one of my favorites because it not only tastes delicious, and is hearty and healthy for you. It is also SUPER easy to put together. But I think the best part about this soup is, every time I eat a bowl, I just FEEL good. Maybe it's the amazing rich broth, or the big chunks of beef and cabbage. Or maybe it's just that it warms your whole body up the moment you take a spoonful. Whatever it is, I promise this soup is going to be on your fall & winter menu rotation!

    How much cumin is needed. It is not listed in the ingredient list...

    It didn't say how much cumin. Made the soup and it certainly needed something. Kind of bland.

      I’m sorry you didn’t like it, Liz! I just made the soup this weekend going off my original recipe and I noticed not only did I leave off the cumin here, but also the Italian seasoning. So yes, no wonder it was bland! Ugh! I feel awful. I hope you try it again and find it more pleasing!
