  • Yummy and perfect for a chilly Sunday. Super easy, but full of flavor. It was a little too spicy for my 10yr old, but she ate the whole cup. I doubled the recipe, but kept the hot spices the same. - 2/17/13

  • I would have given this recipe a 5, but it is far too spicy for our taste! Next time, I'll go with the spicy sausage and leave out the red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper. - 9/16/12

  • Fixed this tonight - it was so quick!We love this soup! I had to make a few substitutions due to ingredients on hand - I used chicken sausage, bok choy and yogurt instead of evo. milk a Also I ground the fennel seeds. The fennel and cayenne were a great combo. Did not add the crushed red pepper. - 5/11/09
