Great Soup! We had it in bread bowls for dinner and it was filling and delicious! I did add a small amount of whipping cream to the pureed mixture, but i don't think it needed it. This soup is delightful and full flavor! It ended up simmering for about 40 minutes....and was so good!!!! Thanks Asha for an awesome dinner!
Very good and healthy. I didn't puree the soup as I like it chunky. Great thing to make with things I usually have on hand. Thank you
This is very good soup. I doubled the batch and added some macaroni and black beans to it.
Yum! Thanks for posting!
I'm not giving stars because I think it is the kielbasa-in-soup part that I just didn't like. I love kielbasa/smoked sausage fried up - oh yum! But, I cut it into cubes, fried it up and added it to this yummy soup that would have been way better off without it. I need a "crust" on my sausage :) I also added about 1/2 a yellow pepper that I had in the fridge, and a can of tomatoes. Nice flavor though. I added kielbasa after blending.
We loved this! I am going to play with it and try to find a way to omit the kielbasa from the puree because it bothers me a little bit, but other than that it is truly VERY good. Rustic and yummy. It screams for bread!
I made this a bit more full-fat than the recipe called for using regular kielbasa and broth and adult chopped carrots. I did slice the kielbasa thin and fry it up separately to reduce the fat and get it more browned. (Love that browned flavor.) The soup was very good and easy to make. I skipped the puree step (lazy) and wish I had not done so, as it was not quite as thick as it should have been. I kept thinking that something was missing as I ate it. I think I'll add a bay leaf next time, as that will probably fix the issue. Using the canned beans made it come together in short order. It actually took more time to gather the ingredients than to prepare the soup. With the puree and some crusty bread, this would make a nice light dinner.
This was very good and very quick and easy. To save on dishes instead of blending half of the soup I just used a potato masher to mash some of it up.
I found this recipe in Cooking Light years ago. I really enjoy this soup. It has a nice smoke flavoring to it.
Such a flavorful, robust soup and so easy to put together! Love the colors (the orange from the carrots and the green spinach make it very colorful). Healthy & tasty! I've made this at least a half dozen times and have used other sausage like those "gourmet" roasted red pepper chicken sausages.
