This recipe is so simple. I made some changes to it because I had other ingredients: I used fully cooked kiebasa and boneless/skinless chicken breasts instead of the hambone and sausage. I also only had onion, potato, carrot and cabbage. My daughter loved this, even though she "doesn't like cooked cabbage!" Thanks, Karen!


Wow! I wasn't expecting much from this recipe, I thought it be bland and boring with no spices or garlic, but it was terrific. I didn't have ham hocks so I used only wild rice brats. I sliced them and sauteed them, then sauteed the root vegetables in a little olive oil, and used chicken broth instead of water. Next time I'd like to add some garlic.


Great recipe! I had turnips, carrots, garlic scapes, cabbage and kohlrabi from my CSA share and didn't know what to make. Pulled out some smoked sausage and started there. I didn't have ham hocks, but not to worry. Sliced the sausage and sauteed with a sweet onion. Deglazed the pan with white wine as well. In a crockpot I put 5 chopped turnips, 1 chopped kohlrabi, carrots, and a few garlic scapes sliced thin. I added a can of black beans and corn and a bouillon cube. Lastly I added a can of mild chiles and didn't add the cabbage until about an hour before serving. My husband said the turnips tasted like potatoes and it was a great soup. Super easy and used my produce the best way I could find.
