This is a delicious recipe I adapted from one of my cookerybooks entitled "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" by Phyllis Pellman Good. Its perfect for those hot summer nights, when you don't want to heat up the kitchen but you want something just a tad bit heartier than a salad! And . . . no surprise here . . . its fabulously delicious!
And its so simple to make. If you can bang everything into a pot, then you can make this, because . . . that's all it really involves!
You just bang all of the ingredients into the slowcooker/crockpot, cover it, turn it on and then walk away and get on with your day!
And it's absolutely flippin' delicious! Simple ingredients thrown together in the tastiest way! It really is fabulous and its quite healthy also. Especially if you use the lower fat smoked sausage, and I do!
A jar of sauerkraut, some chopped onion, smoked sausage, stock, potatoes, carrots and tomato puree. (Tomato paste to you North Americans) You can't get any easier than that, and the flavours . . . wowsa wowsa! Of course the tomato puree I choose to use is the Cirio Double Concentrate in the small tubs. A simple staple ingredient I keep on hand at all times . . . with a genuine and delicate taste that is both distinctive and unmistakably authentic.I love it!
And I LOVE LOVE this soup. Great flavours, filling, simple and hearty. I like mine with crackers, but the Toddster . . . he's a bread man all the way.
And the nice thing is . . . it tastes even better reheated the day after! SCRUMMO YUMMO! I can't wait to make it again. I always have these ingredients on hand, which means . . . I am always only ever a few hours away from enjoying it!
