mamaCD's Superb Cabbage Soup

Introduction

Easy, delicious and versatile. Pick your favourite low carb vegetables, change the kinds of meats that you use and soup starters. Its a whole new meal every time you make it. And for those members of your family that do not eat low carb, just serve theirs over 1/2 cup cooked rice, pasta, potato, or left over kraft dinner. They will love it also, and not feel deprived nor will you. Easy, delicious and versatile. Pick your favourite low carb vegetables, change the kinds of meats that you use and soup starters.
