I increased to 3 celery ribs, 2 carrots, and one pound of smoked turkey kielbasa and I used low sodium tomatoes and beans; a very warming soup on a cold evening after working all day!
I was excited about this soup but after making it I did not like it. Not enough meat in the soup. My husband even refused to try it.
I accidentally used diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of stewed tomatoes. Substituted 3 red potatoes for pepper & zucchini. It was quite tasty.
+ 2/3 cup barely last hour of cooking.
I found this recipe on a search to use up a bit of leftover kielbasa, and picked it because the other ingredients were readily on hand. I was incredibly surprised at how fantastic it turned out! This is a restaurant-quality soup, hearty and delicious.
