I enjoyed this soup for my dinner tonight and am looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. I used soyrizo. The only substitution that I made was to use dried thyme in place of fresh since I didn't have any on hand. I especially like the turnips in this soup, and as another reviewer pointed out, I was pleased how the kale holds up in the dish. Thanks!
