German Potato Butternut Sausage Soup

We’ve been working in the yard, expanding our garden beds, and gearing up for Spring, even though we have snow predicted this week. So excited for the warmer weather!

The other night, when it was warmer than usual, and after working outside for hours, my hubby and I turned on some music and made soup together, with squash and parsnips and potatoes from our garden!

Yes, the parsnips and potatoes were fresh from the ground. (Did you know you don’t have to harvest them all in the Fall?) And Butternut squash you can store in a cool place all winter long! (The garage works well for this.)

So … here’s the recipe. ENJOY – it’s one of our new favorites! Hearty and tasty!

In a large Dutch oven, add oil and cook sausage, onion, peppers and celery over medium heat until soft and browned.

Add caraway seeds and spices. Add the stock and the beer and bring to a boil.

Add potatoes, parsnips and squash. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until soft.

Add broccoli. Simmer for 5 minutes more until soft.

Stir in the cabbage and the cream. Taste and adjust the flavor with salt. Cook until tender and the soup is heated through.

Serve.

Paul and I decided this will be one of our “go-to” recipes for soup. This and warm bread out of the oven makes a romantic meal to share together!

The kids even loved it and it’s good enough for company, too.

What’s your “go-to” wintertime soup that you love?
