Reviews for Root Vegetable Soup with Sausage
Sort By :
"I've made this soup many times and we love it. The quality of the sausage, even though its a small amount, lends a lot to the spice of the soup. It makes a large batch and freezes well."
"Served it as the first course at Christmas dinner, it was a huge hit. Sent everyone home with the leftovers"
"I didn't use turnip and I substituted Venison Sausage and it was fantastic. Made a double batch to share with neighbors and family."
"I felt that this soup could have used a few more spices. I felt it was a bit bland."
"Love this! I make this without the cream, pour it into small freezer bags & freeze it. Then I can pull out just a small portion when I need my own personal bowl of soup. I add the cream after it defrosts. This soup is thick & creamy & the sausage is just fun. A luxury. A comfort food."
