I have made this soup three times in the last 4 weeks. Delicious and EASY!!!! I add carrots and celery to it too. I have a big pot in my fridge which I made on Sunday. Love it!!

We had so much leftover ham from Christmas that everyone was tired of eating it. I found this recipe and decided to try it. It was wonderful! It was really cold, so this soup was perfect to combat the winter night. It was easy, too. I just dumped it all in my crock pot, as someone suggested in the comments, and walked away. It turned out perfect. This will be a keeper for us!

This soups sounds awesome. I would imagine that you could make it a slow cooker too. I like potato soup and have never added cabbage to it. Recent studies have shown that cabbage has good antioxidant properties so I think I would like to try eat some more of it!

I only had kielbasa (no ham) so I used that. Still ended up with a yummy soup.

What would you think about using the shredded brocolli slaw mix instead of cabbage?

I mean broccoli - sorry

If you use the broccoli slaw, you would need to add last...about 15 minutes before soup is to be done.

incredible soup very fast luv it

LOVE soup! Yum
