When I first read the words "Cheeseburger Soup" on the menu of our local deli - my thought was YUCK! This was the special every Friday! Well one Friday I decided to broaden my taste buds and give it a try! It was sooooo good! Being the cook that I am, I just knew I could make this on my own. So here is my version and If I do say so myself - "it's better than the deli's" but shhhh....don't tell them!!!!!
This is the best Kale soup I have ever eaten. I will post it exactly as Panera's did, but I used 8 ounces of the turkey Kielbasa instead of 6 and 48 ounces of the chicken broth. Great with some crusty bread.
This is 100% better than any canned tomato soup! --- If you find that the soup is too thick for your liking you may thin out with more tomato juice during cooking if desired, I strongly suggest to use V-8 tomato juice for the best flavor, this soup will only improve in flavor the longer it is cooked and it tastes even better the next day, it also freezes well -------- LOW-FAT OPTION reduce the butter amount or use a healthy alternative such as Smart Balance Butter Blend and use fat-free milk or fat-free half and half
I'm not sure where I found this recipe. It's more tomato-y than some versions (but then every one I've looked at here is quite different!). I'm also not sure whether herbs de Provence is appropriate to a Portuguese soup. But it's delicious, that's for sure!
Every time I make this soup, people rave about it. It couldn't be any easier, and tastes like you've slaved over the stove all day! Delicious, high protein, high fiber, low fat, low calorie! This recipe is a constant in our menu rotation. It's also what I call "Pantry Food" because everything required is stuff we always keep on hand. Perfect for a sudden cold snap that has you craving hot soup!
My BF and I decided to improvise in the kitchen tonight and came up with this wonderful soup. It has a bit of a kick but awesome flavor. We both stuffed ourselves. All measurements are estimated, we were having too much fun throwing things in the pot. :)
