Cabbage, Potato and Sausage Soup

"It was Sunday and I had not gone to the store. Both my pantry and fridge were bare and the weather was rainy and cold. I was really in the mood for some of Olive Garden's Tuscana Soup so I used what I had available and using a little creativity I created a nice soup for a cold rainy day that was not like the Tuscana soup but it satisfied my craving for something similar to it."

Ready In:




  • In a large pot on medium high, cook sausage, onion and bell pepper together. Once the sausage is cooked thru and crumbled, add the 1 1/2 cup chicken broth.
  • In a glass measuring cup, add the reserved 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/4 cup sour cream. With a wisk, mix thoroughly until the sour cream is incorperated and there are no lumps. Add this mixture to the pot and give it a stir.
  • Add chicken bullion to pot. Add the garlic salt and pepper to taste. DO NOT over do it with garlic salt as the chicken bullion already has salt in it.
  • Add the cabbage to the the pot and about 1 cup of water (or atleast enough to barely cover the top of the cabbage).
  • Bring to a simmer and taste to check if more salt is needed.
  • Cook covered on medium for about 20-25 minutes or until both cabbage and potatoes are tender. Add the cilantro at the end of cooking.

I was born in Honduras, Central America. I came to the states when I was about 2 yrs old and now currently have a full time job in the medical field. I have a family of 100+ relatives also living in Austin and we all share a passion for good food. I am known for the foods that I prepare for my dinner parties and special occassion gatherings. Weekends at my house are packed with family and friends because we usually have the grill going. I also have a knack for baking. I have been told by several people that I should open my own bakery or restaurant...which I am seriously considering in the near future. I absolutley love to cook and this is why Zaar is a heaven sent! I like to take other peoples feeings into consideration when rating recipes so my rating system reflects that. I do not rate below a 3 just for the simple fact that everyones taste is different and what might taste magnificant to some, might not be too great for others. I always give everything a second try unless I absolutley hate it (then I take a second look at the recipe and find out what attracted me to this recipe and how can I alter it a bit to my taste). I usually spend my free time brainbstorming recipes and creating them with my beautiful daughters (pictured above)!
