799 mg Sodium, wow, that will put your blood pressure in overdrive.It comes from the high salt contents from the Kielbasa and Bean'n bacon soup. Daisey5 had the right idea, use 2 cans of Low sodium Chicken broth, use 2 cans of white Navy Beans or Great Northern, and low sodium/low fat Kielbasa or Turkey Kielbasa. Cook Potatoes and Carrots as directed in the Chicken Broth (dont drain). meanwhile saute the Onion, Celery and Kielbasa slices in 1 tab canola oil and spoon into above potato/veggie mix, add the 2 cans of beans, pepper and a sprinkle of sea-salt to taste. It will be better tasting and healthier for you (less then half the sodium) unless you want to go into sodium overdrive. Normally i would not critique someones recipe this harsh, but the 799 mg got my attention and concern.

This is a very good soup. I used smoked turkey sausage to make it a little healther. I think next time I will use chicken broth instead of the water and maybe a can of diced tomatoes like katysue said.

made this for supper tonight and my husband really liked it. You can add just about anything with recipe. Someone suggested a can of tomatoes too. It's really good.
