As is, I'd wager that this was a fairly bland but easy soup. I used italian sausage and added a little bit of dried oregano, basil, and rosemary to the mix. Just those few changes made it a very tasty dinner and lunch.

This soup is so easy! I actually subsitute the Mild Turkey Sausage and use the bagged spinach. All it needs is a little extra pepper. Easy and Delicious quick night dinner!

Very good. I used regular Italian sausage and turnip greens (or was it collards? I had both) and it's delicious. I suggest that you cut the sweet potatoes up smaller - they seem to plump up when they cook. Also, the potatoes turn a wierd brown/gray when the soup is stored in the fridge, but they brighten back up when the soup is reheated.

I loved it, but I added onions, more sausage, can of chick peas and a dash of garlic salt I use regular chicken broth

This soup was surprisingly yummy and only took about 10 mins, including cutting and washing the kale. I made a few minor changes: I used an entire box of chicken stock (which is 1 only extra cup), I used hot Italian Johnsonville sausage and I doubled the amount of sausage the recipe called for (personal preference). In my opinion, the soup came out perfectly. Just a normal amount of salt and pepper and it was perfectly seasoned. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

This soup was so hearty and delicious! I used chorizo sausage and added some garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. Don't let the kale scare you! It's really mild in this soup.

Always delicious! Made with Cajun sausage and added some black pepper. Most recently I used frozen collards instead of kale. Yummy.

Yummy! I made only 3 changes: Used spicy Italian sausage and doubled it. I used Italian seasoned diced tomatoes (it was all I had in the pantry). I added a bit of garlic (I LOVE garlic). Came out great - A definite keeper!

Simple, quick meal with lots of flavor. I used chicken chorizo sausage and garbanzo beans. I started with 1 chopped onion and a couple cloves of garlic, added stem part of the chopped kale and sautéed fro a couple minutes before adding the sausage, etc..

This soup was very comforting and nourishing. Perfect for the cold evening. I added chopped red onion and garlic, followed the recipe and the recommendation to add cajun seasoning (1/4 tsp) and pepper. Very yummy. I love that is so simple and quick to prepare.

I started with olive oil and minced garlic, then followed the recipe and then added cajun spice, pepper, and a little salt. It was really yummy!

This was good, I'm only giving it 4 stars because there's nothing exceptionally spectacular about it. I used low fat chicken sausage, and added some onion and garlic, because onion and garlic.

Needs spices. I used andouille sausage as I couldn't find a Cajun spice one. I then added Cajun spice. Outcome was okay but I don't think I will make again.
