Potato and Cabbage Soup

German Food Recipes: Potato and Cabbage Soup

This German potato and cabbage soup  is so delicious on a cool autumn evening.

It's traditional for Oktoberfest celebrations as well.

In fact, it tastes wunderbar anytime of the year!

If you are looking for easy soup recipes, try this one. It's such quick recipe that's easy to throw together. You can make so many changes to this one, creating your own version!

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.

Make it vegan or add meat

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. 

German Potato and Cabbage Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb green or savoy cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 lb carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 lb leeks, sliced (wash well!)
  • 1 lb potatoes, cubed
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 quarts vegetable broth
  • parsley, salt, pepper
Instructions:
  • Put the first 6 ingredients in a large pot. Bring to boil and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper (preferably fresh ground) and sprinkle with chopped parsley just before serving.
Hints:
  • For more flavor, brown the cabbage and onions in some oil first. Then add everything else and continue as above instructions.
  • Add some smoked sausage or kielbasa to the soup as it is simmering, if you wish.

More Soup Making Hints ...

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 above 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/vegan dish, or you can always add some smoked sausage or wieners if you wish.

Soup making is very forgiving. Quantities don't really matter. Add more or less of anything! Keep tasting as you go along, and you'll soon master the soup-making skill! Really!

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.

***

Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!
