Reviews for Sausage and Kale Soup

"Im not a soup person, so for me to give this 5 stars is really saying something. I did cook dried garbanzos, but as I did them in a pressure cooker (no pre-soaking) it took 20 minutes with a quick cool. I also used Johnsonville smokes sausage brots, and I used home canned tomatoes. I wish the recipe had the nutritional facts below it, but as I use mostly all home grown ingredients (not the sausage) I have a bit of control as to what goes in it. Ive made this a couple times now and will be making again a few times before spring hits. its a real tasty quick warm me up soup. I will be on the lookout for a meat with a less fat content to use, and then make up for the loss in flavor from the sausage with spices."
"Great recipe! I am delighted how well this turned out. Thank you for a great recipe!"
"Outstanding! Highly recommend. My husband and I love how quick and easy this recipe is!"
"great recipe! I did use both kale and escarole, organic beef stock, and a bag of frozen veggies-used frozen squash instead of potato- added organic chicken sauasage with spinach-healthy and yummy!"
"Loved this recipe. I usually make my own chicken stock because I like to control the sodium content but I used store bought. I also used white beans and fully cooked bratwurst. This was excellent, everyone loved it. I sauteed the garlic and onion for 5 minutes with the EVOO then I added potatoes and bratwurst and let it go for about 5 minutes. Then I added the kale for about 2 minutes and then dumped everything else in at once. Quick, easy and delicious"
