I thought is was great, and so did my family. I did use apple cider instead of wine, and spicy Italian sausage instead of bratwurst, and 6 black peppercorns instead of white pepper. ...So in short, I used this recipe as a framework and filled in the white spaces with whatever I had on hand, but like I said, we thought is was great.

I substituted frozen, Italian-style, turkey meatballs for the bratwurst - because I had them and they’re a more heart-friendly ingredient. It was delicious. I added 1/2 to 1 C. of extra water to tone the strength and make a better soup consistency. It was delicious!



I made this recipe exactly as written and was disappointed in the lack of contrasting flavors in this soup. The seasoning was adequate, but the sweet potato and carrot were too similar. If I try it again, I'll substitute an alternative for the carrot to improve the appearance and variation in texture.
