As the weather starts to get chilly it's lovely to have a warm and cosy soup to enjoy, especially one as easy to make as this. The added benefit of this traditional Polish soup is that it gets better after a day or so, and therefore make a nice big batch to have for lunches to come. The smoked sausage is really delicious so do try and find some if you can and it is full of chunky vegetables so very nutritious too.
Smoked sausage and cabbage soup
Salt and pepper
Slice the bacon, sausage, cabbage, onion, carrot and potato into chunky pieces. Fry the meat in some oil until it starts to brown, then add the carrot, onion and cabbage and cook further until softened. Sprinkle in the paprika and stir through the stock and sauerkraut. Bring to the boil and add the potato, then leave to simmer until the potato is cooked. Season to taste and garnish with fresh dill.
It can be ready in 15-20 minutes and really is the cosiest most delicious soup. A crusty baguette warmed in the oven and smothered in butter is a wonderful addition, but you really don't need it this is so filling as it is. You'll want a second bowl and then realise you can't manage it! Or perhaps you can...it is so tempting after all...
Enjoy! And don't forget to tag me on instagram if you give it a go x
