- 1 (16 ounce) package pork sausage shopping list

- 3/4 cup water shopping list
- 1/2 medium head cabbage, cored and shredded shopping list
- 1 (8 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained shopping list
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced shopping list
- salt and pepper to taste shopping list
- 1 teaspoon white sugar, or to taste shopping list
- 1/2 cup sour cream, for topping shopping list
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley for garnish shopping list
How to make it
- Crumble the sausage into a skillet over medium-high heat.
- Cook and stir until no longer pink. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Fill a large pot halfway with water(about 2 quarts), and bring to a boil.
- Add the sausage, and cover the pot.
- Return to a boil. Add the beets, and cook until they have lost their color.
- Add the carrots and potatoes, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
- Add the cabbage, and the can of diced tomatoes.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat.
- Add the onion, and cook until tender.
- Stir in the tomato paste and water until well blended.
- Transfer to the pot. Add the raw garlic to the soup, cover and turn off the heat.
- Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Taste, and season with salt, pepper and sugar.
- Ladle into serving bowls, and garnish with sour cream and fresh dill or parsley.
- Note: I prefer to cook my beets with the skins on for about an hour in the soup water. The skins slip right off after boiling and its easy to chop or slice them, plus it increases the nutritional value of the soup!
