    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

    Another great base recipe! I swapped out the seasonings for my own taste and garnished with sauteed julienne carrots. - 3/7/11

    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
