soup! soup! soup!
It’s cold outside, it’s time for soup. And after all these sweet recipes (and yes… Christmas cookies are waiting for being made!) the blog needed something different: a sauerkraut soup. It’s a Croatian recipe of the book “sundays at Moosewood’s restaurant” – but I think, in future I will make some modifications.
Anyways, it’s a great way to eat sauerkraut (I do like it!) and soups are always good.
The quantity will be a meal for about 3 people.
2 parsnips (=Pastinaken) – in future, I will replace them by potatoes
1 celery stalk (or a piece of celeriac = Knollensellerie)
1 garlic clove
1 bay leaf
fennel seeds (I omitted them…)
2 tblsp flour
5 cups vegetable stock
500g sauerkraut (the recipe asks for 1/2 cup)
about 2 tblsp sour cream
1-2 tsp vinegar (to taste)
Chop the onions, sauté them in oil. Peel the potatoes, the carrots and the parsnips. Chop them. Add them. Sauté for some minutes. Dust with paprika and with flour. Add the veggie stock and the bay leaf (if you want, ground fennel seeds, too). Add the sauerkraut. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes until the veggies are tender. If it’s not sour enough for your palate, add some vinegar.
Add the sour cream! …and serve with bread.
I think, next time I will use more cream and not parsnips. I’m happy with only potatoes…
