You might call it sausage; I call it kielbasa. That’s where you might notice my Polish roots coming to life.

How to choose a perfect type of Kielbasa?

To be honest, any kind of kielbasa (or sausage) you like. I usually choose Polish Kielbasa, although it is not the same as the one I would back in Europe. This seems to be one of the most popular ones in stores. It tastes good; however, it is definitely not perfect if you are looking at the ingredients. If you are looking for an option with better ingredients, this or that one might be an option.

This hearty and delicious soup is perfect for a quick dinner fix. I use this recipe repeatedly when I have kale lying in my fridge for way too long. You don’t have to worry if it’s not the freshest one, it will still taste great in the soup!

  • Milk – use any kind of milk; I use almond milk, but you can add regular milk as well. Coconut milk might not be the best option here, as it has flavor. But any unflavored milk will work great; another option will be half-and-half or heavy cream – please adjust the amount, as a full cup might be too much.
  • Broth – you can use chicken broth, vegetable broth, or beef broth. Whatever you have in your pantry. I usually use vegetable or chicken broth.
  • Kale – you can skip it or swap for spinach. I love having some kind of veggies or greens in my soup, and kale fits here perfectly.
