    Doberpuppy's Note:

    This is a low calorie soup with a lot of greens and veggies. It's a bit spicy from the sausage, but you can substitute plain ground turkey for the sausage. This recipe changes every time I make it - I put a lot of leftovers into the pot, but it always turns out delicious. Serve a big bowl with focaccia bread as a meal, as a starter, or as a quick lunch. This soup freezes and reheats well.

      -Cook until the carrots and fennel are tender, then add rinsed and drained garbanzo beans.

      This soup is packed with lots of good veggies. I did change up the cooking method a bit. The sausage was browned in the pan along with a touch of chicken stock. The sausage was very lean and didn't really produce enough fat to cook it properly. Next the carrots were diced and mushrooms quartered. They were added into the meat along with the chopped onion, fennel and a couple cloves of minced garlic. They were cooked for a few minutes to caramelize a bit then the chicken stock was added along with the canned tomatoes. The greens were added the last few minutes and were cooked just till they were bright green and wilted. After adding in the chard and kale I thought the soup was loaded with greens and the spinach was omitted. This is a nice comforting soup. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
