3 cups coleslaw mix (I used cabbage)
2 medium carrots, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
2 tablespoons butter
1- 32 ounce carton chicken broth
3/4 to 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I used kielbasa)
2 medium, unpeeled Golden Delicious apples, chopped
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
In a large saucepan, saute the coleslaw mix, carrots, onion, celery and caraway seeds in butter for 5-8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring soup to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes; stir occasionally.
I had to purchase all the ingredients except butter, salt and pepper. My grocery bill for this dish was $13.18. Also, this recipe is from the Taste of Home Winning Recipes Volume 2 Cookbook and makes a 6 serving meal.
This was pretty easy to make. Chop veggies, saute, add other stuff and boil....easy! I have a pretty small food comfort zone and the apples made me nervous, but they were great! The soup wasn't the party in my mouth I expected it to be, but it was good. I think it may have needed pork kielbasa or a little more salt. Overall, James said I could make it again. Stay tuned...possibly a better recipe next week!!
