2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 small Jerusalem artichokes, peeled and diced
1 small carrot, sliced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 knackwurst or sausage of your choice
1 1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) whole tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
1/2 C medium width egg noodles
1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, artichokes, carrot and garlic. Saute 10 minutes or until carrots are softened. Add knackwurst, paprika, dill, salt and pepper and stir until well mixed.
2. Add 4 C water and tomatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer; covered, 10 minutes. Increase heat to high and return to a boil. Stir in noodles and cook for 5 or until the noodles are just tender.
Note: Knackwurst is the German version of a hot dog. It has more spices and has better quality meat than the traditional American hot dog. You choose the sausage or hot dog you would like in this soup.
