Potato and Kielbasa Soup Recipe Tips:

  • Slice Sausage – Slice the sausage in about the same size in bite size pieces.
  • Vegetables – Prepare the vegetables by cutting them in about the same size pieces. This helps for them to cook evenly and about the same time.
  • Cooking Soup – Cook the vegetables until tender and then add in flour. This helps the soup to thicken as it boils over medium heat. Cover the pot while it boils for the best results. Cooking time will vary.
  • Serving – Before serving the comforting soup, make sure to taste. This allows you to adjust the seasoning if you need to.

How to Store Leftovers:

Why Isn’t My Soup Thickening?

The flour is added to help thicken the soup. It is whisked with the grease from the sausage which makes a roux. If you skip this ingredients, then you soup will end up being thin.
You can also use cornstarch as a thickening agent.
