  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the onion and kale in the hot oil until the kale is soft, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, carrot, and garbanzo beans and cook together for about 5 minutes. Pour the chicken broth into the pot. Season with the red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Simmer until the carrot and garbanzo beans are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. As the soup simmers, crumble the sausage into a skillet over medium heat. Cook until entirely browned, breaking the sausage into small pieces with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Stir the cooked sausage into the soup just before serving.

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...

Too spicy, and we usually like heat. The broth lacks flavor, like it needed more herbs and spices. I enjoyed using up my Kale, but I won't be making this again. No one was wow'd by it at all....

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 toma...

This recipe is excellent! I served it over brown rice, and added less broth, so it was more of a stew than a soup.

I'm rather new to eating kale and this was the perfect recipe to start with. I did cut back on the red pepper and used a mild italian sausage for my kids, but it still had a subtle heat to it. ...

I LOVE soup. I found this to be the tastiest I've ever made. AND, I happen to be one of those who really likes spicy hot. So, in addition to the 2T of red pepper flakes, I added jalapeno pepp...

I would give it 5 stars but I thought it had way too much crushed red pepper. I followed the recipe (except I cut the red pepper flakes by half). Wonderful recipe and I plan to make this again...

Now really, does anything need 2 tablespoons of crushed red pepper flakes? Could do with much less otherwise a great recipe.

I LOVE kale! It's so nutritious and delicious. This soup was great, and I would have given it 5 stars had it called for less red pepper flakes. It was so so spicy that I had to add more broth to...

Used white cannelli beans, 8 c of fat free low sodium chicken broth and used spicy chipotle chicken sausage.....excellent and hearty. Loved!
