Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen tips

  • Chopped fresh spinach can be used instead of kale. Stir it in during the last few minutes of cooking.
  • This soup is loaded with chunky ingredients. If you like yours with more broth, add an extra cup or two.

Health Tip: Switch to reduced-sodium broth to save about 300mg sodium per serving.
