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 potato and cabbage soup, creating your own version! It's actually a great way use of those veggies that are languishing in your fridge crisper.
I have to admit that when I make soups, even following my own recipes, I usually double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe!
Because we love soups! And, because they're so wunderbar, hubby LOVES leftovers.
So, I need and use a HUGE stock pot for this. It's easily the most used pot in my kitchen.
In fact, with it's high sides, I often use it when I'm browning meat in order to minimize the splattering all over my stove. Multi-purpose. Perfect for me! Just think how many rouladen or cabbage rolls you can braise in here!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too!
There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
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!
In the photo of the soup above, I browned a pound of lean ground beef along with the onions and cabbage in some olive oil. Once they were nicely browned, I added everything else and continued with the recipe. The result? A wonderful broth and a marvellous flavor. Add vinegar and freshly ground black pepper at the end. WUNDERBAR!
Here I'm cooking a HUGE pot full of potato and cabbage soup. Love having leftovers so we can enjoy this for several days. Sometimes I'll add some kale to the leftovers and make a whole new soup!
