CABBAGE AND KIELBASA SOUP is so delicious! I love the flavor of it! This has a small hint of both tang and sweet in the broth.

We love this soup! 

I did a variation of a recipe from Taste of Home, and it’s a keeper! 

It is so fast and easy to make! 

No salt is needed; enough comes from the kielbasa itself.

It is ready to eat in about 15 minutes, or you can let it simmer all day!
