I've had this recipe since high school, when I visited Germany for a month. My host mother made this soup and I loved it so much that she gave me the recipe. It took a bit of time for us to figure out amount conversions and English names for certain ingredients, namely the boullion, but we did it! I've always thought of this as "Cinderella's Soup" because of the name. We often have this on Christmas or New Year's Eve. It's a hearty and flavorful soup that satisfies on a cold evening.
This is another simple recipe, but with HUGE flavor. I hope you enjoy it, anytime of the day!
