I started with a base of sauteed onions and carrots (in olive oil). Boy, was this delicious!! I added much more kale and used 2 cans of chicken broth. My husband didn't think he was going to like it, but he changed his mind quickly!! I will make this again and again.

This is pretty good--good enough to make again, but not for company or any special occasions. I used homemade chicken broth instead of water--for nutrition and flavor, and used andouille as it is what I can get easily. I must say this is the most I have enjoyed kale ever!

This was great! I used low-sodium chicken broth (more than called for so it was more of a soup), extra kale, about 4oz turkey kielbasa, and half a can of diced tomatoes. I'll make this again for sure - so easy!

I was tasting this from the pot and decided that it was just a bit too bland for my taste. I threw in a can of diced tomatoes and it tasted wonderful. That may just be me and my strong desire for taste. A fun way to use kale.

This is an amazing recipe! I am growing kale in my garden for the first time - but didn't know what to do with it. Now I know! Thank you!

This recipe is dellicious and FAST! From start to finish, under a half hour with the only dirty items in your kitchen being one pan and a cutting board. I substituted chicken stock for the water. Added alot of richness. But I didn't use that much, so it wasn't a "soup". Just enough stock for a nice, rich sauce to cover everything.

I initially made this because I wanted a healthy soup, but was quite impressed with the taste too. However, this was only after I cooked the ingredients in chicken broth and added a splash of red wine vinegar at the end. My boyfriend and I really loved it, and it was quite filling. I recommend this if you want a delicious way to consume your greens.
