Mmmm....Soup!

Pin It Now!

I know I've mentioned that I love to cook before but when the seasons change I love it even more. It's a time when I can pull out my old favorite recipes that I haven't made in almost a year. This sausage and kale soup is one of those favorites. It calls for white beans but my daughter doesn't like those so I substitute with small pasta shells or sometimes diced potatoes (I prefer the beans though). This soup has so much flavor with the kielbasa and the white wine. When we were eating this the other night, my daughter commented that she forgot how much flavor this soup had. I gave this recipe to a friend a few years ago and she didn't like it so I'm a little worried to pass this on but if you are interested click here to see the recipe.
One of the good things about homemade soup is that I can use my soup tureen for something other than a decoration on my table!

Hi Cindy,

I check your blog every day. Love all your decor and crafts. Had to print out this recipe. It's finaly turning to fall in Ohio, and the cooler temps always gives me the desire to make soups. Can't wait to try this one.

I love white beans.
I will try it.
Thanks,
Rosemary

That looks delicious and reminds me of wedding soup they serve in this area, though I've never had it. Am looking forward to the painted table.

I was thinking about soup earlier this week too so I bought a package of 15 Bean Soup at the grocery store and was going to add ham and maybe some cabbage. But even with the "cold front" that just passed, it's still in the high 80's/low 90's here in Florida. Maybe I'll just wait a little longer to make soup... Ice cream sounds better right now ! :)

Mary said...

Ooohh, yum -- that sounds delicious! I will definitely try it. The recipe sounds quick and easy, too, although I'm afraid my daughter won't eat the beans either!

I just made a potato soup for my daughter that's not feeling very good. We love homemade soups, stews and the like when it starts turning the least bit cool. Let the cold winds blow and snowing and the first thing we do is build big, roaring fires in the fireplace and drag out the ole crockpot. Cornbread makes it's rounds more often in the fall and winter, too, along with the soups.
Thanks for a great blog today!

I am a bean fan myself... and make something similar to this recipe...What I love about soup is you can throw just about anything into the pot along with some good broth and have a fantastic dinner in no time...looks yummy ...

Hi Cindy,
This soup sounds fabulous. I have made a similar soup to this one using sausage and spinach. Yep, it had white beans in it. Thanks for sharing!!

Love,

There is nothing as satisfying as hot soup on a cold day, and it looks even more delicious in a tureen. Funny, I have always wanted one, and still don't have one...guess I have something new to be on the lookout for!!

Could you inform me how strong is kale? I don't have any experience using kale. Is this in the cabbage family? This recipe looks so tasty.
Thanks,
Kathy

Kale is sort of like swiss chard or spinach. It's important to cook it down a lot...it's really tough if you don't. I've only had it in this soup but it doesn't taste overpowering to me but I'm a person who loves cabbage and brussel sprouts. I'm not sure if this is in the cabbage family or not. I'm sure this recipe would be good with spinach too if you don't think you would like kale.

My DH will love this. I am definitely going to make it for him. I love to make soups and stews and chilis for the fall!

Linda said...

my mother grew up in a coal mining camp with many other immigrant children. we have had a recipe similar to yours in our family for years that my mother calls "spanish soup" that a spanish lady taught her mother how to make. yum!

Deborah said...

Just a note of thanks for directing us to the Sausage/Bean soup. I made it today - served it with pumpernickle bread and salad and we loved it. I used the beans and added some macaroni shells. Great!

Thanks!
Deborah

Cindy- I tried the soup a few weeks ago and used the beans, but did not have the white wine. However, it was still very tasty. I love trying new recipes, mostly with broth bases. By the way I love your site and your shabby chic style. You have done a super job! love it love it love it.
