"Great soup! I had made once before and usually end up having to modify based on what I have on hand. Used large bag of baby kale and spinach so upped the broth and a little more on everything as like to have some to share. Very good to curb the brrrr in the air."

"Tastes great! We have made this several times - we like Butterball turkey Sausage/Polska Kielbasa best. We use one sausage per batch. (P.S. Make sure kale is tender!)"

"This was a wonderful, hearty, surprisingly flavorful soup! It really hit the spot. I didn't have reduced sodium chicken broth, so I used regular. With the added salt in the recipe, it was a bit too salty, so I would leave out the added salt next time. But otherwise, it was delicious! It was simple to make and is a great way to sneak in a dark leafy vegetable for people who wouldn't normally want to eat them."

"Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! When I'd tried braising kale, I did not like it. I gave it a second chance in this recipe and I am really glad I did! This soup is nutritious and delicious. This recipe is definitely a keeper for making again!"

"This is a very easy recipe, tastes great and is nutritious... my husband says there's too much kale, ao you can cut back on it if you wish, but I like it w/the amount in the recipe."
