How to cook soup of fresh and sauerkraut

Primordially Russian classic soup was cooked from fresh or sour cabbage. They are so good that you can add the one in the fridge. And one more important point: the soup must be thick so that the spoon “stands”.

Before you start cooking, you must choose a recipe, because the dish has many varieties. In the summer season you can put fresh cabbage, in the winter pour sauerkraut. Also add carrots, root parsley, onion, garlic, laurea, celery, tomatoes, potatoes and peppers.

Preparation for cooking

Head of cabbage

The secret to the right soup is that they must be thick, rich, sour - this effect gives sauerkraut or tomato sauce. And the rest - freedom for the culinary fantasy.

Appetizing soup can be cooked in the most ordinary saucepan at home. Buy meat in advance, approximately 400-500 g, small forks of cabbage, 2 loose potatoes, 2 ripe tomatoes, 1 carrot, onion, and put roots and greens to taste. Season with already chopped greens and sour cream.

How to pick and shred cabbage

An excellent choice - a strong autumn head with dense leaves. Do not cook from a young vegetable, it is more suitable for salad. Cut the fresh cabbage into strips and, if desired, bring them to semi-ready separately. Stew the young one in the skillet for 15 minutes and bake tight in the oven using earthenware. Why do this? When weaving, the vegetable acquires a special aroma that will enrich the taste of the finished soup.

How much to cook

If you are going to cook in the broth, take a whole piece of meat and boil it in water for about two hours so that the soup will be rich and rich. Be sure to put fragrant seasonings and roots. In the finished broth, add chopped cabbage. Wait for the boil and lower the potatoes, pre-sliced.

While the soup is boiled, fry the carrot, onion, and roots in butter. Dice the peppers in a cube, peel the tomatoes, send everything to the broth and boil a little. At the end of cooking, add the roasted vegetables, laurel, black pepper.

The last stage can be changed if time permits. Put the pan in the oven, covered with foil, and cook for about an hour. Then add the potatoes (chopped into cubes) and let stand 30 minutes more. After 1.5 hours, get soft meat with a delicate thick stew, as there won't be a lump of potatoes. And mix this fragrant liquid with cabbage, add what you like - tomatoes, sweet peppers, beans (pods), fresh greens, mushrooms. Tomite about another 30 minutes.

"In the soup, you can add a little flour fried in a pan until golden brown, dilute it with broth and boil a little, then put in a sieve and wipe."

Benefit and harm

Rich and tasty soup is, of course, great. But the main thing is that the dish is safe for health. Despite many positive qualities, cabbage soup is quite insidious. So I made a small cheat sheet.

  • Schi improves digestion. Fiber and lactic acid bacteria in the composition help the stomach and intestines, facilitating the absorption and digestion of food.
  • They will bring many benefits for colds and flu, as they contain ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
    “A curious fact: sauerkraut,“ prescribed ”in the form of cabbage soup, helps with a wet cough
  • Quench thirst and slightly reduce body temperature during a cold. One plate of soup - and you will feel better.
  • Can cause aggravation of gastritis, metabolic disorders and water-salt balance due to the high salt content in fermented vegetables.
  • Not recommended for cholecystitis and diseases of the duodenum

Helpful Tips

Shchi with pepper

If time allows, it is good to cook soup according to all the rules, but sometimes you need to cook dinner quickly. In this case, I recommend boiling broth in the evening, over night the meat will become softer and more tender, it needs to be cut and put back into the liquid.

After warming up, daily cabbage soup from sauerkraut will be even tastier, so in the North they often cooked a large saucepan, then frozen it, and if necessary, chipped off a piece, laid it in a pot and warmed up in a Russian stove. A dish cooked on the stove and subsequently frozen, to taste is not inferior to that of the stove.

The soup should have a sour taste, this is a must. In addition to traditional ingredients, you can supplement them with sour apples or berries (lingonberries, cranberries), sour cream, pickled cucumbers and mushrooms. Tomatoes and sweet peppers are put in the South of Russia, and modern recipes contain potatoes that make the soup thick and tasty.

From meat, put on boil strong broth, adding to it bay leaf and allspice. While it is cooked, fry the onions in butter until transparent, then combine with the grated carrots. Once the vegetable is soft, remove the griddle from the stove. Remove the meat, cut into slices, send back to the broth, add potatoes and chopped parsley root.

After 8-10 minutes, season with sauerkraut (pressed from the brine). However, if there are no health problems, nothing needs to be done, just cook it in meat broth for 15 minutes, then put the fried vegetables and spices. Boil another 7 minutes.Serve with sour cream or cream, sprinkling with fresh herbs.
