Food from another time: Sauerkraut stew

Grey autumn days are just perfect for wild rides with the horse. The summer heat and flies are gone. The air is crisp and so is the horse. Every branch lying on the ground is a welcome invitation to leap over it. After 4 hours in the cold air (slightly sweating) I want to make sure I don’t catch a cold. Perfect dish: Sauerkraut stew. No, it’s not German 🙂 The original recipe is from Poland. Here is my version:

1 big onion (or 2 small ones), chop finely.
2 eating spoons of butter, melt in a pot and slightly fry the onions in it.
2 eating spoons of flour, sieve over the fried onions and stirr
1 liter of water, add to the onions. Also add1 can of Sauerkraut,
3 eating spoons of concentrated tomatoe paste
1/2 a teaspoon of whole cumine seeds
1/2 a teaspoon of paprika powder
1 teaspoon of salt
2 eating spoons of vegetable soup stock (powder) and heat until boiling.
1 smoked sausage, cut into slices and add to the stew (skip if you’re vegetarian). Cook until the Sauerkraut is soft.Then add
2 eating spoons of sour cream.
