German Potato Soup

potato soup
This wonderful and hearty soup is a variation on my Oma's (German for Grandmother) Old World potato soup recipe. Passed on through many generations, I'm very happy to put my own spin on this traditional meal. Paired with some good German rye bread, and this is some hearty eatin'!


1/2 Onion

1 clove Garlic

2 tablespoons Flour

5 medium-size Potatoes

2 cubes Vegetable Bullion or Vegetable Broth

2 Celery stalks, small

2 Carrots

1 Bay Leaf

Salt & Pepper according to taste

Pinch of paprika

1 Vegan Italian Sausage


Sautee the onion in olive oil till glossy.

Add the flower and garlic, and a bit of paprika.

Add 1 cup water to the sautee, and stir so it doesn't clump up.

Add the potatoes, chopped into squares, 4 or 5 cups of water, and the celery and carrots.

Add salt and pepper and a bit more paprika, along with the bay leaf.

Cook on medium heat for 30 minutes.

Finally for the last 15 minutes (for a total of 45 minutes), add the chopped vegan sausage.

Guten Appetit! (Good Appetite!)
