Very filling soup; this has a tangy flavor to it; instead of the dollop of sour cream, you can add a tablespoon of cream cheese to the bowl to smooth out the taste. I don't like to use either; I just like the soup as it is. The only thing I do differently is add extra pepper because I love a peppery 'kraut!

Instead of the kielbasa, you can also use beans to make this a vegetarian dish.

How to Make Polish Kielbasa Sauerkraut Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Sautee onions in pan with the butter until onions are tender (don't completely brown / carmelize them).
  2. At the same time, in a pot, add potatoes and enough water to cover them about an inch over the tops of the potatoes.
  3. Add onions to potatoes. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes. In the meantime, rinse and drain your sauerkraut.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot except for the optional ones and the salt-to-taste.
  5. Add more water to just cover all the ingredients. Cover and let cook until potatoes are tender (about 20-25 minutes).
  6. After potatoes are tender, turn off heat. Stir in salt-to-taste. Add extra pepper if you'd like.
  7. When serving, garnish top with dollop of sour cream, freshly chopped dill and/or chives, and/or parsley. Eat this soup with some good buttered polish rye bread on the side!
