  • Very Good

    I substituted cannelini beans and frozen vegetables and cut the cooking time to 30 minutes to keep them more crisp. Very colorful and delicious. Swiss chard is also good sub for kale if you don't like bitter greens. - 12/12/07

    A great soup! I used a bag of left over Stir Fry veggies which also had a little chicken breast in it-and cooked Kale from the freezer. Also added fresh chopped Zucchini. It turned out great! Pat - 8/3/09

    Make a similar soup using zuchini instead of summer squash cubes. - 4/20/11

  • The squash is tough to cut up raw. Best to pre-cook it ahead of time. I cooked mine halfway on the "potato" setting on my microwave. The taste of this soup is a bit bland. It "needs something" perhaps in herbs. I'm not sure how I would fix it. - 6/5/14

  • This recipe could easily be made into a vegetarian one by using veggie broth instead of chicken broth. Try it out! Looks like a hearty but healthy recipe. I happen to have kale in the fridge, so I may try this one tonight! - 12/12/07

    TIMETOSTART2 - How hard is it for you to substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth? - 12/12/07

    OVETABUILDS - of course I realise THIS particular recipe could be adapted to suit vegetarians, was suggesting that an indication that a recipe is vegetarian would be a good idea (particularly when it is a "Featured Recipe" on an email and not one found by searching where you can specify veggy) - 12/12/07
