Original recipe yields 6 quarts



  1. Place water and kielbasa into a soup pot, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in diced potatoes, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes more. Add greens and beans, simmer for 20 minutes longer.
  2. While the greens and beans are cooking, place a saute pan over medium heat. Stir in the bacon, and cook to melt out some of the fat. Sir in the garlic, onions, and bell pepper; cook until the bacon is almost crisp. Drain off as much grease as you can, and add the mixture to the simmering soup, and cook an additional 15 to 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Made this in the crock pot and it turned out wonderful and thick. Used fresh (instead of frozen) collard greens that I needed to use up. Kept everything pretty much the same as called for and it was wonderful. Don't really need too much salt or pepper. The main ingredients provide enough natural seasoning and taste.



Great recipe! Everyone in the family loved it. Makes a big pot of thick, hearty soup/stew. If too thick for your liking add an extra cup of water. Not much tweaking needed...only added an extra clove of garlic. Bacon was too soft, so next time I'll cook the bacon until crisp, remove from pan and then saute the onion, green pepper and garlic. Don't dice the potatoes too small or they'll break apart when cooked. Would also be good with black-eyed peas. Definitely a great tasting soup!



This definitely is a hearty soup. A great way to use collard greens. It was a bit on the thick side, an extra cup of water with 1 tsp. of beef granules made it perfect, or I should say to our liking. We shall make this dish again during the winter months. Thanks for sharing.
