The Godlewskis Sweet-Sour Tomato Soup With Cabbage and Sausage

From the Gapers Block team of Sharon Bautista, Cinnamon Cooper, Cliff Etters, Andrew Huff, Robyn Nisi, and Shanna Quinn

[Ed: Who are the Godlewskis? I haven’t a clue. But this was one great, weird, satisfying soup. It’s surprisingly sweet, but not overmuch, and a riot of distinct but complementary flavors.]


1 large onion, chopped
1/2 small head cabbage, cored & sliced
2 medium carrots in 1/2″ slices
10 ounces smoked polish sausage, 1/2″ slices
1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes in puree
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon each: allspice, paprika
salt & pepper to taste
small potato, diced
cider vinegar to taste (add near end of cooking time)


Cook the onion for a few minutes in olive oil. Add the cabbage and carrots, and again cook for a few more minutes. Toss in the sausage, let it cook some, then add everything else. Simmer until the potato is tender. Add a splash of vinegar near the end.

    Have you ever made this soup with stew meat instead of polish sausage?
