Sauerkraut Soup

Right now, we are trying to fight off a horrible flu, that the wee man brought us home as a birthday gift for himself and others to share. So a Sauerkraut Soup seemed to be in order!!!

This is easy and fast and so perfect when you feel rotten.

You need:
1 clove of garlic, 
6 spring onions and
6 very small diced spuds. You fry the whole lot in about
3 Tblsp. of Oil.
add about
3/4 cups of soaked minced Soya.  Once the Soya is well fried (does not need long so watch it doesnt burn!) add about
half a litre of veg stock and
400 gr of chopped tomatoes (I used cocktail tomatoes because I like the sweet taste) and
1 chopped red pepper.
Boil until potatoe pieces are done
then add about
500 gr of ready made sauerkraut (I prefer the mild one with wine) bring to boil, add
caraway seeds (2-3 tsp.)
black pepper and
tabasco and
some fresh cream (depending how creamy you like 1/2 to 1  cup)
The whole lot lasted us for 2 days so it is either for 2 people and 2 days or 4 people on one evening.

Enjoy, and stay away from those summer flu bugs!
