5 from 1 reviews

This sauerkraut soup is a delicious German-style sausage soup made with a creamy potato base. Topped with fresh sauerkraut and sour cream, it is a healthy and filling meal that comes with a dose of probiotics. 




For Serving


  1. Saute onion, garlic, carrots and sausage in oil until the sausage starts browning.
  2. Pour in water, canned tomatoes, bay and paprika.
  3. Add in the potatoes (whole or sliced in half for really large potatoes) and bring to a boil.
  4. Simmer until the potatoes are soft (about 20 min). Remove potatoes with a slotted spoon. Roughly mash the potatoes with the milk.
  5. Stir the mashed potatoes back to the soup and salt to taste.
  6. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and sauerkraut.
