Autumn Harvest Soup

Kielbasa cabbage soup beans

As fall begins with its cool crisp air and the musty smells of fallen leaves and smoky outdoor campfires going in the backyard, I always crave a wonderful brothy soup full of good things.

Fall cabbage soup

This soup offers it all; it’s broth is laden with the rich spicy flavor of turkey kielbasa, and a bevy of autumn harvest vegetables like carrots, cabbage and spinach. The broth is bumped up in health benefits as well and colored fall-like with beautiful tinges of golden turmeric and curry powder.

The overall flavor is amazing as well as good for you. This pot makes a large portion for a crowd but also freezes incredibly well for a no-fuss reheat later on in fall or winter when you want to pull it out, thaw it and warm it up some chilly night when hot soup with its soothing ways will warm up even the coldest toes and fingers.
