After eating two bowls of this soup, I decided it was too bland for me. The next day I got the idea to try it with Cajun seasoning. It did the trick! The flavor of the sweet Italian sausage goes well with this spice.
I added a pint of cream to this recipe, and omg, it is to die for!!! I read the reviews and I also added some regular potatoes to this along with an extra can of beans. Delishious!!!
Excellent soup, I substituted with fajita seasoned chicken sausage and black beans, which is what I had in the house. I added zucchini and butternut squash. A new favorite for me!
Very flavorful soup and will make again. Couldn't find sweet turkey Italian sausage but used chicken-apple sausage instead. Was a little low on chicken broth so I threw in about a half-cup white wine.
I have made this soup for 5 years and my husband loves it. We enjoy soups especially when the weather gets cooler and this is a fave!!!!!!! If you have a bread maker sweet Hawaiian bread is a great match.
Definitely a very good and flavorful soup. My kids will eat it, though they prefer the broth and meat over the veggies. I have made this many times, using both sweet and hot sausage.
Got rave reviews from my family. Only change was using hot italian turkey sausage which gave plenty of flavor.
Delicious soup--a new favorite for my husband and me. I substituted turkey kielbasa for the sausage and black pepper for the red pepper. The blend of flavors is superb. SAB
This was wonderful! I actually made it vegetarian by using vegetable broth and vegetarian Italian "sausage" from Trader Joe's (in the refrigerator section). Awesome!
I halved the recipe since I was only cooking for 2. I followed the advice of several reviewers and I pureed the soup at the end. I cooked the sausage separately and added to the pureed soup. I think it tasted much better with the creamy consistency and all the flavors combined well. Also I used a low fat turkey sausage. My boyfriend who is not a fan of kale love this recipe. The sweet potatoes and beans really cut out the bitterness of the kale. I will definitely be making it again.
This soup is SO good. Definitely will prepare again. Very tasty, interesting mix of tastes (sweet potatoes, hot, sweet). Great for cold winter's night. Doubled the sausage and may double the beans next time. Crushed some of the beans for a thicker texture, but i'm sure as a broth would be very good too. Ate by itself, husband had toasted baguette with his. We each had 2 servings the first night! Highly recommended!
This was wicked good! I'm not a fan of kale, and had received a metric ton of it from my farm share (CSA). I'm always looking for ways to use it up. I added about a 1/2 lb of chorizo I had in the house (in an attempt to make it more Portuguese-y) instead of the turkey sausage and it it worked quite well. My family loves the combination of sweet and spicy (so I definitely added in the full amount of crushed red pepper). I recommend this recipe.
This soup combines some of my favorite foods -- sweet potatoes and sausage. It's hearty, tasty and a nice change from "typical" wintertime soups. I used a combo of red and white sweet potatoes, chicken sausage and no salt added chicken stock. I served the soup with grilled cheese on crusty bread.
This is one of the most delicious soups I have ever tasted! I would definitely make it again. I used all chicken broth (Swanson's Organic) - no water and I cooked my cannellini beans from scratch. I had gotten a lot of sweet potatoes and kale in my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share and was looking for something to make that utilized both. This was perfect. Served it with a green salad.
I found it a little bland and probably won't make it again.
I love this soup. It's easy to prepare, tastes great and reheats well. I make it with 1/2 sweet potatoes and 1/2 baking potatoes as I find it too rich with all sweet potatoes. I've also made it with yams instead of sweet potatoes and it comes out great. I chop the kale very finely as my hubby isn't a fan of the texture.
One of our favorites.
Delicious soup!!! I've made it a few times then I lost the recipe. Thanks to this web site, I found it again. I use spinach instead of kale, yum.
