“A hearty kale and sausage soup that's very easily converted for the vegetarians. Cooked in a slow cooker or simmered on the stove, this makes a delicious, satisfying, and filling winter dinner.” - by Aimgrrrl

Increase the garlic cloves and kosher salt. Lastly, by adding the sausage only long enough to smell the sausage fails to infuse it's flavor into the beans. Bottom line, cook the whole thing except for the kale for about 4 to 5 hours. That said, I made it again, added 3 chopped serrano peppers, 1 with seeds, increased the garlic cloves 8 fold and added the kale half way through. To me, the secret here is to infuse all of these wonderful flavors including the sausage into the beans and kale."
