    This was the first meal my husband and I cooked together after we were married, on our honeymoon in Croatia. We were staying at an Airbnb and short on supplies, so we winged it. We cook a lot so felt comfortable going off recipe. We used dried herbs (a random mixture in the cupboard that I think was oregano, marjoram and rosemary), only green cabbage and leeks instead of garlic and celery. We also used a can of crushed tomatoes instead of fresh, which I probably would have done at home anyway. It adds so much flavour and its way easier. We had chicken boullion so we used that. We didn’t use cheese (couldn’t find it in the market!). I did find it a bit bland but I just added salt to taste and also a healthy amount of Hungarian paprika for added spice which we’d conveniently picked up in Budapest the week before. We served with a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. So overall a pretty loose interpretation but it was delicious and cheap and we will always remember our first meal together as husband and wife.

    This soup was just what I wanted. I loved it! I didn’t have any stock so used a vegetable bullion and it was just perfect. I did a search for the veggies that I had on hand and found this – how wonderful is that!

    Enjoy this soup, but I feel too that it is a bit bland. It needs probably another 1/2 t. of salt and what else could give it a bit more flavor? I didn’t try the Tabasco sauce but perhaps that is the solution. Cumin? Saffron?

    Made this with chicken broth and minus the cabbage. Was still pretty good! Good recipe for a simple and comforting meal.

    My sister in law just made this soup for me — it is delicious! The addition of the cheese to the broth adds so much flavor and makes it taste a little like French Onion Soup. Yum!
