I'm a big fan of sauerkraut, so when I see a recipe that uses it, I always take a second look.  In this Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Soup with Kielbasa from Coconut and Lime, I think the seasonings sound perfect to complement the flavor of the sauerkraut and I also love that Rachel recommends using turkey Kielbasa, which is my personal favorite.

If you're worried about the sourness of the sauerkraut, Rachel says "The soup is much less vinegary-salty than you'd think, it is sort more like a very fragrant cabbage soup."  There are probably not many more soup days left before it's hot outside, so try this soup now and see what you think.

Ingredients for this recipe:
  • Light or turkey Kielbasa
  • onion
  • celery
  • garlic
  • sauerkraut
  • Yukon gold potatoes
  • apple cider vinegar
  • chicken stock
  • thyme
  • caraway
  • black pepper

  1. This is a new idea for me -- I've never cooked with sauerkraut. But I'm eating more cooked cabbage now, so I've got to try this recipe.

  2. Lydia, I have one soup recipe with sauerkraut, and I agree with Rachel that it kind of melts into the soup when it cooks, love the sound of this one.
