This is my family’s absolute favorite soup, and I can have it on the table in 30 minutes. I usually double the recipe, as the flavors blend and make the soup even better the next day.—Dawn Rohn, Riverton, Wyoming

"We found this recipe to be a complete meal and what a nice way to use kale! I am not a kale fan but am trying to find ways to include it in any recipe I can because it's so healthy. This is it. I've made this a few times now and each time I use a different meat. They're all wonderful."

"This was so good! I made a Niman Ranch kielbasa version for my husband and me, and a vegan version using Sprouts vegetable broth and extra red potato and kale for our daughter. Both were terrific. The soup was our entire meal. For the meat version, as usual I used homemade stock, which is so easy and so worth it. My slight variations based on ingredients on hand were to use a bunch of green onion plus a medium red onion. I also added half of a red bell pepper and extra mushrooms. I also started the potatoes in the microwave and finished them by sauteing for much longer than mentioned in the recipe. The result was earthy and delicious. Highly recommend!"

"My family and I love this soup. I have made it a multiple times. Every time I make it I exclude the potatoes (personal preference). Otherwise I have followed the ingredients fairly close (once using italian sausage and another time I used frozen green beans as substitutes as that was what I had on hand). All of which turned out wonderful!"

"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 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"

"The soup turned out awesome. I accidently used diced tomatoes with chili peppers and I used a hot sausage in the recipe. Gave it a bit of an extra kick. Yum. Definitely a keeper."
