Sort By :
I love warm and thick soups and this was wonderful. I made a vegetarian version by adding turnips and parsnips instead of the sausage and it was just perfect. Delicious and hearty for a belly warmer as the leaves outside are falling. I never really used kale in soup before, so am glad I found this recipe.
Hearty soup, easy to prepare.
This was wonderful soup; however, 26 oz. of chicken stock was not enough. I'm thinking that is an error. I doubled the chicken broth. I did used canned broth, not stock and the soup was very delicious. My lunchers all asked for the recipe! Confession: I used regular sweet Italian Sausage!
Too many ingredients that weren't on hand
This is definitely our favorite soup. I freeze it in Ziploc bags. I used one pound of Italian sausage, doubled the red pepper flakes, used two cans of diced tomatoes and added a cup of whole kernel corn.
