Cabbage Soup with Paprika, Kielbasa, and Raisins

Soup... so easy, so nutritious, so flavorful, and so few pots and pans to wash and inexpensive to make.
A one dish meal served with some type of bread on the side. I have chosen biscuits today.
The frozen Pillsbury Southern-Style biscuits are really quite good slathered with some butter!

This recipe is from "The DEAN and DELUCCA Cookbook".
My copy is dog-eared and a bit spattered and stained from use.
Definitely look for this book to add to your collection!

6 slices BACON, diced
1 medium ONION, halved and thinly sliced
3 lb. CABBAGE, cored and cut and separated into 3/4 inch wide strips
1/2 tsp. PAPRIKA
28 oz. can of diced TOMATOES, drained
1 1/2 lb KIELBASA, cut into 1/3 inch slices
PARSLEY for garnish, if desired
PEPPER, freshly ground

Place the bacon in a heavy-bottomed soup pot over moderate heat. Cook for 5 minutes or so, until a good deal of the fat is rendered.
Add onion and garlic. Stir and cook for 5 minutes.

Add cabbage and paprika, stirring well to blend. Cook for 5 minutes.

Add the stock and the drained tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the raisins, and simmer for 10 minutes more.

Add the kielbasa and simmer 5 minutes.

Divide amongst 8 soup bowls and garnish with parsley if desired and a grinding of fresh pepper.

*This soup is even better the next day as the flavors meld. The raisins impart a slight sweet taste that is most pleasing!
