    I really liked this. The paprika and garlic made it really warming - great on a winter's day! I'd never have thought of cabbage and black beans together, but it worked perfectly. I used half the oil, and parsley instead of thyme. - 1/1/09

    Once your body is used to digesting fiber, you won't need the Beano. Try it in small amounts first. Cabbage has enzymes in it that facilitate metabolism. When i eat cabbage I lose weight faster than when I don't. I'm always looking for good recipes with cabbage to keep up the weight loss. - 6/7/08

    I made this, and while it was cooking I tasted it. Phooey. Not very good at all. One star. Something was missing. I added some ham base. I had one strip of bacon left and added it, would have put in more if I'd had it. The ham base made all the difference! 5 stars. I split the difference with 3. - 3/15/11

  • This was very good. Hubby, son and I love cabbage and black beans and I never though to marry them in a dish before, delish! Rinsing the beans before using will take away them part that causes gas in most people, just a tip for people that have a problem in that area, then bean-o is not needed - 2/2/12

  • Surprisingly yummy. Missing something, though. Of course, I didn't use veggie broth--just water. But I enjoyed the blend of the cabbage with the beans. - 11/6/11

  • Sounds good but the nutritional data doesn't say how many it's for, in the box. Is it actually calculated for six? 300 calories sounds like a lot for all of that, in 6 servings. But if it's for all 6 servings, it sounds about right. - 2/3/11

    Cabbage or Scallions? They are two totally different things. I like cabbage but it doesn't sound that great with black beans. However, with scallions (green onions)? That sounds absolutely devine! - 10/31/08

    FEDEXGUY, 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 6 servings only adds about 40 calories. Olive oil is one of the healthy ones, and our body needs a certain amount of fat. The recipe is well within healthy guidelines just the way it is. - 10/31/08
