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
Yield: 4 servings
- 1 or 2 sausages (fresh or smoked)

- 1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered
- 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Heat a medium pot over medium high heat. Brown the sausages and then remove them from pot. Add the broth and potatoes to the pot and bring to a boil.
