OKAY - Probably won't make again
This a wonderful soup when you need some comfort food on a cold day!
Great soup! Since its so cold in Upstate, decided to make this soup & I must say its awesome. Followed the directions exactly except for replacing the smoked sausage with Turkey sausage (health reasons) & omitting the orzo, as I didn't see the need for it. The soup is hearty and loaded with carbs considering the beans & corn. This is a keeper in my recipe box for Winter months. Jeannette, thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us all.
Could the high sodium count be from the sausage? I'd prefer to make it without the sausage or maybe add some chicken instead. I am also cooking for one, but this type of soup freezes very well. This sounds very tasty.
Delicious. I'd skip the orzo because I have to freeze part of it because I'm only cooking for 1 person. The orzo disintegrated in to what looked like cracker bits. I prefer kale to spinach because it holds up better and I grow it in my garden. I used jalapeno chicken sausage and salt free broth.
1067 mg salt in a 1 cup serving?!!!!!! You have got to be kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My husband loved this. I shared with some friends and they asked for recipe. I didn't have kale so used spinach. Very good. Will make again.
Great winter 'warmer'...I cut the shallots down to 1....I felt 8 was way too many!
This an awesome soup! i use spinach instead of kale, and I love it!
I was amazed at how much I liked this soup! I am more of a cream soup kind of person, but I needed a gluten and dairy-free recipe (I used rice instead of orzo), and this was delicious! It has such great flavor and I was sure I would need to add salt, but it doesn't need any! I will be keeping this recipe on hand! Thanks you for sharing this Jeanette!
