Like the best dishes, this soup tastes like way more than the sum of its parts. I mean, who would guess that brussels sprouts, potatoes, and sausage could be so incredibly crave-able? It's hearty for cold fall or winter nights, and its deep, rich flavor tastes like it's been stewing for hours, but it's actually ready in a snap.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 or 2 sausages (fresh or smoked)
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth (if you have homemade broth around, use it!)
  • 1 lb. potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered
  • 1/2 tsp. caraway seeds (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a medium pot over medium high heat. Brown sausages and remove from pot. Add broth and potatoes to the pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, cut sausage into bite-size pieces. When broth is boiling, add brussels sprouts, sausage, and caraway seeds. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
