Soups are great but healing soups are even better. And today, we have the perfect sauerkraut soup recipe that's healing, incredibly delicious and super easy to make. So if you want to improve your health while you eat a delicious warm soup, this recipe is for you.
Sauerkraut is well known for its immune-boosting probiotic properties and all the good that does to your body. It's the perfect ingredient for a nurturing healing soup such as the one we are about to make.
Nowadays, it is really easy to find sauerkraut at the store but you can always make it from scratch. It's actually quite easy and it is a great way to put your cabbage to good use. You don't even need to do any cooking. Just leave your cabbage to ferment with a few other ingredients for a flavourful, crunchy, super healthy delight.
When you make this sauerkraut soup just make sure you add the sauerkraut at the end. We don't want to kill all the good bacteria by overheating the sauerkraut. That's where a lot of the healing powers of our soup come from!
Sauerkraut soup is incredibly flavourful due to the sauerkraut of course. But there are a few other ingredients and spices that contribute to the delicious outcome. One of the secret (not so secret) ingredients that will add a very unique flavour is caraway seed, so make sure you don't leave them out.
Caraway seeds are also known as meridian fennel and they are widely used in traditional European cuisine. They are very aromatic and have a slight resemblance to anise when it comes to taste. They are a bit milder than anise but they also have that beautiful sweet earthy flavour that can make any dish really comforting.
Caraway seeds come with a lot of flavours but also a handful of benefits that make them worth having in our pantry. Here is a list of the most important ones:
On the list is mentioned that it supports your digestive health. But it doesn't say the added bonus that I think needs to be mentioned, especially since we are cooking cabbage.
Caraway seeds have been used for centuries to heal different digestive issues and to stimulate healthy stomach and intestine action. This is relevant when cooking cabbage since cabbage can make you gassy. Caraway seeds are great for preventing and getting rid of that unpleasant gas. A match made in heaven, right?
As you can see, this sauerkraut soup is great for keeping your belly healthy and working properly. And since we have a bunch of other ingredients in there you get a wide variety of nutrients that will enhance your overall health.
Keep this sauerkraut soup recipe close, it really comes in handy when you're not feeling 100%. A single bowl of this nurturing, heartwarming soup will help take care of you!
