Vegetable Soup With Cabbage

Soup is one of my favorite dishes to make because it is healthy, economical, easy and tastes delicious, nothing like that stuff you buy in a can.  I also always make enough for leftovers so this is a regular on my meal list so I do not have to cook every night!   I have so many recipes and variations for making soup for this reason. This soup is such a great dish so go ahead and give it try, you will be so glad you did!
