Hoff's Kraut Soup

Hoff's Kraut Soup
Yields: about 10 cups
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free

  • 6 cups Water
  • 3 tbsp. Water
  • 1 cup Sauerkraut Juice (reserved from Kraut)
  • 2 15oz. cans diced Potatoes (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 15oz. can Navy Beans (rinsed & drained)
  • 2 cups Sauerkraut
  • 2 vegan Sausages (chopped small)
  • 1/2 medium Sweet Onion (chopped)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1/3 cup Alstertor Dusseldorf Mustard
  • Pepper to taste
  • Sea Salt to taste

  1. Using a Blender - blend 1 can of Potatoes & 3 tbsp. Water until you get something resembling mashed potatoes (creamy, but lumpy), set aside
  2. In a large stock pot over medium-high heat, sautee Onions until browned
  3. Add Sausage and lightly brown
  4. Add Garlic and stir constantly for 30 seconds to prevent burning
  5. Pour in Water & Kraut Juice
  6. Add Potatoes, blended Potatoes, Beans, Kraut & Mustard
  7. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes
  8. Season with Salt & Pepper

Hoff Thoughts: You should be able to get about a cup of Kraut Water from a 32 oz. container of Kraut, if not, just substitute with Water to get to 7 cups of liquid total.  I have found Alstertor Dusseldorf Mustard at Giant Eagle and World Market.  Just use your favorite Mustard if this one eludes you, but you can't get any more German than Dusseldorf!
