This soup was good. I didn't find it phenomenal, nor did I find kale to be the star that I expected in this. The kids ate it, but I could tell it wasn't their favorite thing I've ever made, and they're pretty good eaters. I added some chopped cauliflower and ground turkey to bulk this out, and it ended up making a huge pot. After adding liberal amounts of salt and Mrs. Dash, I still found this lacking in something I couldn't quite put my finger on. Cheese came to mind, but since I was making this to be healthy, I resisted. For the same reason I did not add any cream or milk, which also seemed like it might be good. After dinner, I added some chicken bouillon, which granted, added even more salt, but gave this soup the "umph" it needed. All in all, a solid soup, but I will probably look elsewhere next time I'm in the mood for soup. Which I won't be for awhile, because this made enough to feed us for a week! My only other thing with this soup is that, even with the colorful veggies, it doesn't strike me as a "pretty" soup, not very good potluck fare - which is unfortunate because it really is very healthy. However, I would pass this up at a buffet table in favor of other dishes. And I would be missing out on some pretty decent soup, I can see how a little cream and sausage rather than plain ground turkey would have made this a really great soup. Hmm... maybe I will have to give it one more go.
