Hearty, thick and quick for a busy evening. A great, filling meal with lots of flavor and few ingredients. I made no changes to the recipe and it was fantastic.
My 9 year old nephew devoured this recipe! Thank you so much, it was cheap since I already had leftover frozen kielbasa-will make again!
We loved the flavor of this soup! I think the next time I make it I will use the crockpot to help the flavors blend better. I also think a little minced garlic would be good, but then I think garlic is good in everything, but dessert:) I served it with cornbread and that was great in MHO. This is only 4 points on Weight Watchers. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
I love this recipe! The soup is very tasty & satisfying, yet so EASY to make. And I think it's even better warmed up the next day ~ Thanks!
Both hubby and I really enjoyed this soup. I think it would be wise to make the soup, refrigerate it overnight, then re-heat and serve. The left-overs were even better than the fresh served. I think the overnight sit made the flavors blend a bit more rather than being distinct separate flavors. Also, the kielbasa had time to give off more flavor. I'll definately make this again, but most likely will do it as a plan-ahead dish, so it has the sitting time. Very good!
What a great comfort food!! I will be good on a cold snowy day or anytime you just want to feel warm inside!! I did add some salt and pepper to it, I may even try a little red pepper when I want a kick to it.
This was delicious! To use up things I already had on hand, I fried up 4 strips of bacon, diced, and briefly sautéed the vegetables in the fat (bacon removed). Then proceeded with the recipe (except I had Glory seasoned butter beans rather than the called for soup). I was planning on freezing some but it all mysteriously disappeared by the next day! :)
Quick and delicious. My family loved it! The bean and bacon soup makes it great. Even tastier the next day.
Perfect for a cold, winter evening! Easy to make (if you don't have a screaming 2 month old while you're making it like I did!) We ate toast with homemade apple butter with this.
I made this for a friend who is Polish descent and she went NUTS. She is not a real creative cook or eater and she was shocked with the recipe and with the soup. I used Mirepoix from Trader Joe's to make it even easier and chicken broth instead of the water. DH and I will eat this using Turkey Smoked Sausage instead of the Kielbasa.
