    January 2, 2012 by Varga László


    This is a Hungarian soup that is eaten traditionally on New Year’s Day and so I did too this year.

    Ingredients (4 persons)

    • 300 g sauerkraut leaves
    • 1 teaspoon marjoram
    • a pinch of cumin
    • 6 bay leaves
    • 10  peppercorns
    • 1 l stock (pork or vegetables)
    • 5 cloves of garlic
    • 1 small onion finely chopped
    • 1 small red pepper
    • 1 small chili pepper
    • 1 thick slice of bacon
    • smoked sausage (and other smoked pork stuff)
    • water
    • salt
    • oil
    • 1/2 tablespoon flour
    • 1 teaspoon paprika


    Preparation method:

    1. Wash the sauerkraut leaves to remove some of its saltiness then slice it thinly.
    2. Chop the garlic, onion and red pepper.
    3. Place the cabbage in a pot, together with the onion, garlic, red pepper, spices, broth and water.
    4. Cook it until the cabbage is tender, for approximately 30 – 40 minutes.
    5. Add the sausages to the soup and cook further for 15 minutes.
    6. Cut the bacon into small cubes, add them to a pan and fry the until they become crunchy golden-brown greaves.
    7. Remove the greaves from the pan, add the flour and paprika mixing them into a roux.
    8. Add the roux to the soup and cook for a another 10 minutes.
    9. Taste the soup and, if necessary, add salt but probably it’s not needed since both the sausages and sauerkraut are salty.
    10. Serve the soup with sour cream.

    Happy New Year!
