Simple Sausage, Potato, and Cabbage Soup

This is such a simple soup with so much flavor and nourishment. There are truly only a handful of ingredients, no fancy equipment needed, and  very basic seasonal ingredients that you could find anywhere this time of year.

This is the kind of soup you make on a night when there’s not much in the house and you’re rushed for time. This is the kind of soup you make for lunch when your children are coming in from a morning out in the cold. This is the kind of soup I’ll be making for years to come because it fits the bill for so many of our needs.

And I bet you this soup, or some variation of it, have been made by many, many mothers for generations.
