Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon paprika, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 ounces kielbasa, cut into small chunks
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 14 ounces small red-skinned or new potatoes (6 to 8), quartered
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • Crusty bread, for serving

Method

Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and glistening, about 6 minutes. Add the paprika and 1 teaspoon salt; cook until the oil turns deep red, about 1 minute. Add the flour and cook until just toasted, 30 more seconds. Immediately whisk in 4 cups water. Add the kielbasa, carrots, parsnips, potatoes and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt.

Step 2

Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce to a simmer; cover and cook until the vegetables are tender and the broth has thickened, about 20 minutes. Add the vinegar and season with pepper.

Step 3

Combine about half of the parsley with the sour cream in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Ladle the stew into bowls; top with the remaining parsley, a dollop of herbed sour cream and a sprinkle of paprika. Serve with bread.
