Frozen broccoli-cheese sauce makes this hearty soup a speedy addition to a lunchtime or evening meal. It's a great way to use up leftover rice. This recipe can easily be doubled, too. —Laura Mihalenko-DeVoe, Charlotte, North Carolina
The lively flavor of lemon perks up this rich, brothy soup accented with sugar snap peas. “I enjoy this soup with a green salad, sourdough bread and a glass of white wine,” writes Celeste Buckley from Redding, California.
“This is a delicious stew,” says Carma Blosser of Livermore, Colorado. “The sausage and turnips give it really special flavor.” A slice of crusty bread makes a great mop to clean up any remaining broth!
“This soup is so satisfying,” writes Donna Ahnert from Scotia, New York. “You can substitute other beans, kale or add leftover corn. For brunch, I add a fried egg on top and for dinner, my husband adds lots of hot sauce!”
This flavorful stew works well with a variety of wild game. The meat turns out to be very tender and the sauce is thick, with a nice pepper presence. We like the stew on the hot side, so season to your taste.
