About this recipe: Kale is one of those leafy greens that we all should eat more of. This recipe incorporates kale into a hearty soup, that will lighten up your day. Serve with a crusty roll.
This soup was great! I followed the recipe as written, but made it before work and put all into the slow cooker after cooking the kale down a little. I did not add the sausage, as the soup was flavorful and peppery without it, but will add some later for my husband, as he's more likely to eat it with the meat. I was uncertain at first, as I've tried kale and some other greens before and found them too bitter, but this soup was a wonderful way to get the health benefits of kale and the other vegetables without the disadvantages of canned, high sodium soups. - 08 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A good, hearty soup to start. I ended up adding a few more things for flavor and heartiness. I added a tsp each of parsley, thyme and rosemary, doubled the garlic and added one cup of diced tomatoes in juice, a cup of white wine and a handful of chopped mushrooms. I also tossed in some chopped cooked kielbasa toward the end of cooking to add more protein. Yum! - 12 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is excellent! I served it over brown rice, and added less broth, so it was more of a stew than a soup. - 08 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
