Sour Cabbage Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Transylmania

This is a great Transylvanian soup!! I've written you the vegetarian version but it is very common to add some pork to this. The name for this in Hungarian is lucskos and in Romanian lucicosi. Make sure that you use fresh sauerkraut packed in plastic, not from a can.
