Deutsche Kartoffelsuppe mit Bohnen
Potato soup is very popular in Germany. This variety uses beans, a good source of fiber. If you cannot get the type of sausage suggested below, substitute with franks.
3/4 tsp. oil
1/3 cup onion, chopped
2/3 cup carrots, sliced
2/3 cup potato, peeled, cubed
2 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp. dried marjoram leaves (optional)
9 ounces beef stock
5 ounces Bratwurst, Knackwurst or smoked turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch slices
10 ounces canned beans, not drained
9 ounces canned cut green beans, not drained
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onion 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Add carrots and next 4 ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer about 15 minutes (until vegetables are tender). Add sausage and beans. Cook until thoroughly heated. Serve with a dry white wine.
