Farmhouse Cabbage Soup

I love soups but do not make them that often.  I guess the reason why is that I like a hearty meal.  Soups can be hearty and this Farmhouse Cabbage Soup eats like a meal for sure.  Besides the cabbage highlighted in the name, this soup is filled with beans and kielbasa.  It is a very hearty soup.

There was a particularly long cold stretch in Chicago.  What my office mates know is that I show up to work in cords, winter boots and a fleece like top.  I do not care if I am not a fashion plate.  I want to be warm.  I inherited a poor circulation so I am often cold.  One of the favorite cards I recently received from my wife showed a man and a woman on the front.  The card said that the couple was perfect together because the woman had cold feet and the man’s warmth was always there to help her.  My wife simply had arrows going back and forth from the man and woman flipping the characteristic associated with each person.  You get the idea.

Now you know I do not eat pork.  So I substituted turkey kielbasa for the regular kind.  I would say that even beef would have been better.  The one negative of substituting turkey sausage in any recipe is it lacks fat.  This recipe begins by charring the kielbasa.  The turkey kielbasa tends to char and not add any real flavor to the soup.  The sausage is removed from the pan in cooking and the vegetables added to pick up the fronds on the bottom of the pan.  Eventually, everything is thrown in the pot and cooked down blending various flavors to make this hearty Farmhouse Cabbage Soup.
