Hearty Czech Style Sausage and Cabbage Soup

Cabbage soup with sausage makes a great winter warmer, both for your kitchen and for your body. It is quite adaptable and you can vary the soup however you like. Maybe leave out the sausages and use brown rice instead of white. Shred some Fontina cheese over this Czech cabbage soup if you like and then broil it so the cheese melts rather than stirring it in. The choice is yours. Use an ovenproof pot if you are going to broil it. A terracotta pot will give an especially pretty presentation.

Do not use a strong-flavored broth in this cabbage soup recipe. You just need a liquid with a mild taste so avoid anything salty or too strong tasting. The flavor in this recipe comes from the cabbage, sausage, wine and other ingredients rather than the broth. Use Savoy cabbage or any other kind you like.

If you want to use Kielbasa for this cabbage soup recipe, go ahead. You can use any kind of sausage you like. Some types need to be cooked in boiling water for half an hour and then skinned and mashed so cook the sausages until they are done the way you like and then add them to the soup.
