This German potato and cabbage soup ("Kartofeel-Weißkohleintopf") is so delicious on a cool autumn evening. It's traditional for Oktoberfest celebrations as well.
If you are looking for easy soup recipes, try this one. You can use either a green cabbage or savoy cabbage. The savoy cabbage is a milder tasting cabbage, so it's really great for those who really don't like cabbage that much. But since cabbage is so healthy, give it a try.
You'll find this is a great "comfort" soup. Filling and satisfying, it's one that I make often, not just for family, but guests as well. I think you'll like it as well.
If you really like cabbage, then use green cabbage. This recipe is an easy way how to cook cabbage and end up with a soup that satisfies. The recipe below makes enough for 4 people, but I like to double the recipe so that there are leftovers for the next day.
The amounts of vegetables can vary - a bit more of this and a little less of that. This can be a vegetarian dish, or you can always add some smoked sausage or wieners if you wish.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Gaby S: This is in my oven right NOW!!! Can't wait to try it!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
