GF Vegan Frankfurter Soup 2 Ways

February 12, 2021
Frankfurter soup is something many families make in Hungary, usually those who have German origins, yet every family has its own unique method. In my family there is two ways making it. The "white" and the "red" soup.

The difference is that one is make with sour cream and flour and the other is not so thick and made with paprika powder. Both are super delicious, and nutritious.

Cabbage is one of the best ingredient for winter dishes as it's packed with vitamins and minerals that boost your immunity. For the photos I made the white version.

In a large pot, heat up the oil over medium heat.

Sauté the onions until translucent, then add garlic and cook for about 3 more minutes.

For the red version:

If your making the “red soup” now remove the pot form over the fire to stir in paprika powder. Make sure not to do this over the fire because paprika burns easily, which makes it taste bitter. If you decide to make the “white version,” skip this step.

Add potatoes and cabbage and cook for 2 minutes, until they start to soften.

Add veggie broth, season with salt and pepper, and the rest of the seasoning.

Cover with a lid and cook until veggies become tender.

For the white version:

Mix together the sour cream with the flour, add a little water if needed. Once the veggies are cooked, stir in this sauce in the soup, make sure to mix it well so there won’t be any big balls of flour in the soup.

Taste and adjust seasoning.

Slice up the vegan frankfurter and stir in the soup as well before serving.
