Delicious!! I added zucchini and corn to make it more veggielicious! Also a pinch of paprika..
This was a pretty good base for a soup and came out similar to a minestrone but a little light on flavor. I kicked it up a notch by adding 2tsp cilantro, 2tsp cumin and 1tsp smoked paprika. My only problem with this recipe was the potatoes, after an hour they still were not cooked, my suggestion would be to boil them in the broth for a while before adding all the other ingredients.
My local butcher makes a FANTASTIC andouille and this soup was definitely a winner. I needed to cook it for much longer to make the sausage tender, simmer for at least an hour. Then add potatoes and onion mixture and cook for 20-30 more minutes. Add tomatoes during last 10-15 of cooking so they don't disintegrate. I also only used 1 onion and NO liquid smoke. Making these adjustments made it perfect - adding it to our regular rotation. Thanks!
