Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a small amount of butter, saute carrot, celery, onion, caraway seed, and a dash of salt until vegetables are softened.
  • Add water (or broth), potatoes, dill weed, and chicken bouillon (unless using broth). Boil until potatoes are just about tender; 5 - 7 min.
  • Add kielbasa and sauerkraut. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium low, and simmer about 5 min. or until potatoes are tender.
  • Remove about 1 c. of cooking liquid from soup and stir together with sour cream in a small bowl; add back to soup. If you prefer a creamier consistency, add additional sour cream 1 TBSP. at a time until it reaches the desired creaminess. Heat through.
  • Test for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.

    Thanks everyone for the great comments! Whenever I mention this soup to people, I get their 'gross' face and usually a comment like "Sauerkraut...in soup?" I felt the same way when I first tried it, but I was converted. It is a good soup. I like Lori4flavor's suggestion of using vegetable broth instead of the water/bouillon combo I listed. I usually keep broth on hand and prefer it over bouillon, but was out when I added the recipe, so the bouillon is what went in. I edited the recipe today to mention you could use broth equivalent to the water and omit the bouillon. Thanks again all!

    Okay...I made a double batch of this in a low fat version! I used turkey kielbasa and low fat sour cream, and it was still very good!!!

    I made the soup too! Loved the robust flavors and the light creaminess that the sour cream added. I used a smoked turkey sausage and subbed 3 cups of vegetable broth for the water and bouillon. I will definitely be making this again. My pic has joined the others. Thanks again, Nat! :)

    This is absolutely delicious! 10 Forks! I made it as written except I omitted the caraway seeds and dill weed. I'm not a fan of those. I used 1 1/2 cups of sour cream to make it more creamy and I did mash some of the potato chunks to thicken the soup. Juels was so right...our soup is gone in one night also! I know I'll be making this a lot! I'll double the recipe next time! I added my pic to the collection!

    I came back to tell you that I made this soup over the weekend. We all loved it, it was gone in one night! The souerkraut blended perfectly in this soup, it lost most of it's sourness while cooking. All I can say is, delicious, and will definitely make again! I added a pic under yours, hope that's OK.
