Family Recipe from Supermodel Heidi Klum for Sauerkraut Soup

DH and I were both very pleasantly surprised with this delicious soup! It makes a TON, so make sure to use a very large pot! I did make a few changes...turkey instead of beef, a bit less sauerkraut, fresh mushrooms, and chicken broth instead of the vegetable...all the changes were simply because that's what I had, but this soup is so forgiving that I think you could really use whatever amounts suit you best and you'd still come out on top. The amount of onions had me a bit worried...DH was literally tearing up in the other room...but I had no cause for concern. I did opt fo the chili sauce instead of the ketchup. I wasn't sure how much heavy cream to add at the end; I think I ended up adding around 1/2 cup or so. The cream adds a nice richness and I do suggest not leaving this out. All the ingredients blended very well and made a very nice tasting, rich and filling soup. We felt that a nice crusty bread would have been perfect with it! I'm already passing the recipe along to my mom, and she's making it tonight. Maybe it's my German heritage, but this soup ROCKS!!!
