This Creamy Sauerkraut Soup with Kielbasa is the answer to your easy weeknight dinner. And everyone I have ever served this soup is pleasantly surprised. Trust me.
Boar’s Head is my choice
There will be many many choices for the kielbasa. I gravitate towards Boar’s Head brand. It’s usually the cleanest, inexpensive and easily found at most supermarkets.
Other brands of kielbasa will have a minor amount of carbs, but not enough that it should deter you.
The Carb Count
FYI…The carb count in this Sauerkraut soup is dependent on the use of Boar’s Head kielbasa. Most other brands with have some carbs because if the fillers. Look for Boar’s Head or any other clean Kielbasa as a first choice.
