I thought this recipe sounded great, but the sodium from all those canned goods would be out of sight for a cardiac patient. I tried this one with frozen veggies, low sodium V8 juice, and very lean ground beef. I added the shredded cabbage and some parboiled red potatoes, and they were a great addition. I couldn't find a low sodium tomato juice, but I did use plain crushed tomatoes with no salt added. This was a great recipe! I hope you like my low-sodium version too!
