Your quest ends here, as I introduce you to the delectable Cabbage and Sausage Soup. Envision a concoction where the crunch of fresh cabbage and the richness of succulent sausage meld seamlessly with a medley of spices, creating an experience that’s nothing short of culinary poetry.
This recipe is not just about tantalizing the taste buds. It’s a journey back in time to my childhood, when the gentle aroma wafting from my grandmother’s kitchen promised a delightful treat. It was more than just a meal; it was an occasion. An occasion of gathering, sharing, and bonding, replete with tales, laughter, and of course, generous ladlefuls of this heartwarming soup.
16 oz smoked sausage, thinly sliced
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 cup celery, finely diced
1 cup bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
3-4 cups cabbage, coarsely chopped
32 oz broth (be it vegetable, beef, or chicken)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
Kickstart your culinary adventure by heating a sizable pot. Toss in the sliced sausage and cook until it turns a delightful golden-brown. Once done, transfer it to a plate.
In the same pot, stir in the minced garlic, onions, celery, bell peppers, and carrots. Sauté this vibrant mix until the veggies soften and release their delectable aroma. Now, fold in the chopped cabbage and let it cook until it loses its crunch.
Time to pour in the broth, creating a comforting bath for the veggies. As it starts to bubble, sprinkle in the array of spices – garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and oregano. Stir well, ensuring the flavors intertwine beautifully.
Allow the soup to simmer for about 15-20 minutes, infusing every bite with flavor.
Re-introduce the browned sausage to the pot, ensuring it’s heated thoroughly. Adjust the seasoning if necessary.
Ladle the soup into bowls, ensuring a mix of veggies and sausage in every serving.
