    This soup lived exactly up to its name; simple in concept and simple to make. It was very tasty and surprisingly filling. I found I did need to use more stock than it said (I used 2.5 litres in total) but then the two potatoes I used were exceptionally large, so this might have accounted for it. I have eaten some and frozen the rest. Thanks for sharing, Dan  -  03 May 2012

    I made this and it turned out better than i expected and was very filling too, I used a combo of white cabbage and a bit of green savoy cabbage too to make mine, This is now one of my favourite soups along with Broccoli soup which i make regularly, All very good for you i reckon these soups!.  -  23 Aug 2015
