bulk Italian sausage
low-sodium chicken broth
red pepper flakes, or more to taste
ground black pepper
torn kale leaves (bite-size pieces)
I subbed hot turkey Italian sausage, omitted the pepper flakes, and used Yukon gold potatoes. These were my only alterations from the recipe. As far as the directions go, my potatoes were done in 15 minutes, and I did not add any milk or half and half until the end of the cooking, when I allowed them to heat through, but not boil. This has an amazing aroma as it cooks, and it is a hearty, satisfying soup. Do not be concerned by the lack of added salt, because the broth and sausage are salty enough to flavor the whole batch. DH and DS approved!
Not a fan I thought this was going to have more flavor. Even adding salt to this recipe did not help. I will not make this again.
I have made this soup but not from this EXACT recipe. It's pretty much the same, except I added a lot more kale. Like the other reviewer, I wouldn't add the milk/half & half til after the potatoes and kale have cooked. It would curdle and I'm always a clutz on the stove top with boiling (I have a 2 yo, that helps distract me :) Love that I'm getting all the vitamins and yumminess in one bowl! Hubby could have done without the kale, but he also would eat bacon by the pound if he could!
This was fantastic! I followed the recipe and it was great. So far I've made it three times since. Once I used those round red potatoes. It was delicious. Another time, I only had 2% milk and regular chicken broth. Still delicious. Last month, I stuffed as much kale as my Dutch oven could handle...still wonderful. This is my absolute favorite recipe. You can add little things or leave as-is and you create a wonderfully, comfort soup. Next time I'll add a picture. Thanks for sharing!
This soup is great and I've been making this for twenty five years. I don't use ground sausage, but use Kielbasa Sausage and use more kale than indicated. My family loves this!
I made this soup today and it was fabulous. I didn't have half and half so I substituted heavy whipping cream and more chicken broth than milk. I also used Swiss Chard instead of Kale. It was delicious!
Oh how I love a good soup! And this one is no exception. The only change I made was that I used skim milk because that's all I had and if it made any huge difference, it didn't seem to matter. I did saute my onion in with the sausage, but that was mostly because I didn't really read the instructions. Oh and I used collard greens instead of kale. So I guess I actually made several changes. Anyhoo, it was great. Next time, I'll add more greens, whatever kind I'm using, because there's plenty of room for it and they're so good for you. But there will be lots of next times for this soup as it is now in my permanent "keep" file.
I am not a vegan, but live with one. I made this vegan style a few times using: a very rich homemade veggie broth, vegan style sausage ( I liked the patties that I crumbled the best, I'm not sure if I can use brand names), and at the end a dash of whatever protein beverage we had around e.g. soy, almond, coconut, rice, etc. type milk's.
As I said I am not a vegan, but thoroughly enjoyed it vegan style.
