I really, really enjoyed this tasty soup! It was a cold day today and it did the job of warming me up. I'm really giving it 4.5 stars. I'm anxious to eat it again! I sauted one green onion along with turkey Kielbasa and added a little more garlic. I used free-range chicken broth from cartons and organic sauerkraut. I left out the caraway seeds.

very good, just like anything with sauerkraut. I am sauerkraut lover and make my own.

I liked this soup. Very tasty. I like sauerkraut anyway. When I tried the soup after the recipe amount of time, I found the sauerkraut still tart, so I simmered the soup for another hour or more, and it mellowed quite a bit.
