Heidi Klum's Sweet & Sour Soup Recipe

“Most of the time people put sauerkraut on hot dogs,” supermodel Heidi Klum tells OK!. “In Germany we make sauerkraut soup that’s sweet and sour. This is my mom’s recipe, and we still make it together. It’s one of those dishes that just makes you feel cozy. I also love for my kids to have traditional German foods because it’s part of their heritage.”
