This Sauerkraut Soup recipe, aka Sauerkrautsuppe, is a favorite. It's one of the easy Eintopf (one-pot) meals that Germany is so famous for. Everything's cooked in one pot - easy clean-up! You can alter the amounts of the veggies or meat according to your tastes. Soup is simply a mix of what you like.
Measurements can be approximate (within reason!). It can be a bit of this and a bit of that. So, make this Sauerkraut Soup your own favorite!

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 :)
When making the Sauerkraut Soup, make it just like Oma would ...
I love sauerkraut. I just never had it in a soup when I was growing up. Sauerkraut was something that was served as a side dish.
When I was asked a while ago for a recipe for sauerkraut soup, I thought it a bit strange. That is, until I did some research and looked through lots of German cookbooks. I found a great assortment of easy soup recipes and even a sauerkraut casserole.
I did some experimenting and this soup is the result. It always gets rave reviews when I serve it. To round out the meal, I serve a salad such as this lettuce salad with sour cream salad dressing and some fresh buns, or homemade artisan bread.
