I'm a huge soup lover, and this recipe is top notch!! I sauted the onions, celery, and carrots in olive oil first for a little extra flavor. Easy and delicious...my huband loved it!

this soup was easy to make and very delicious. i used smoked sausage instead of the kielbasa and one clove of garlic, garlic and i don't get along, lol. will make this a lot even though i don;t really have cold winters anymore in Florida. I also am putting it in my gorgeous grandchildrens cookbook I am creating here on the 'zaar.

I made this on the stovetop and simmered a few hours. Took the suggestion of "Scouter Girl" and sauteed the veggies first. I used frozen baby lima beans (did not have dried). I held out the tomatoes initially because DD does not care for them, I then decided to leave them out entirely fearing that it would be too salty with them. I would make it again, but omit the salt altogther and add tomatoes as directed. My baby boy LOVED it! Thanks for another great soup recipe for my file.

This is very good and easy soup. I did soak the beans overnight though - partly due to our high altitude. I used 4 cups of water and 1 can beef broth, a lot of pepper and I also threw in a couple of bayleaves. Very good and hearty! This soup is also filling -- a must for a low cal/low fat soup. Thanks for sharing this keeper!

This is an absolute keeper. To speed the process I did the quick soak method on the lima beans and added less water. I used a combination of canned chicken broth and the flavored cubes. I used 2 pounds of kielbasa and about 1/2 pound of baby carrots uncut instead of cut carrots. Otherwise I followed exactly but cut cooking time to 3 hours @ medium setting. It is great with cornbread.
