"Added 1/4 c chia seeds for more protein. Hubby didn't complain& liked the stew. Next time I would add some spicy v8 juice for more sauce because the chia seeds absorbed the liquid."

"Loved it! And so easy, ...I did add a few things, chopped chicken thighs, 1/2 cup of navy beans, fresh yellow beans, small potatoes , med shallot and 1 cup of wine, (my opinion you can never use too much wine for that savory flavor) Then I just let everything cook together, it was delish! (My significant other does not like a lot of beans that's why I used the navy beans because they are smaller, and he is not crazy about kale so I just substituted a little and made it my own, ) served with some crusty bread, perfect for a chilly evening. Thanks for the recipe!!!!"

"This was delicious! My husband and I are not vegetarians, but we enjoy meatless meals. I used beef broth, since that is what I had on hand, and I added some Tony Chachere's Herbs and Spices blend at the end. We topped it with grated Parmesan. We both liked it, and it re-heated really well the next day for lunch. I will make this again soon."

"Very good soup. My husband said that it was a good way to disguise kale. :)

Will definitely make it again."

"This was really good. We grew lots of kale this year so I used a little more kale and since I have to keep things to almost no sodium, I chopped fresh tomatoes and used veggie broth with no salt added rather than wine. Since I cut all of the sodium down, I served it with a slice of crusty bread on the side."
