Rae's Kielbasa Stoup

Rachel K.


One night I was searching for a great dinner to put together for my Husband and Myself and we didn't have much of anything. I found the green beans and kielbasa and thought to myself, "My grandma used to make a casserole with kilebasa and green beans, wouldn't it make a great STOUP!" So I proceeded to search my fridge and cabinets for the remaining ingredients that bring this stoup together! Everyone who has had it absolutely LOVES IT!

burn garlic as this would give the soup a bitter taste and in essence would ruin the dish entirely.
Add carrots and cook for about 3 minutes (on medium heat) this will help them soften quicker and gives them a sweeter taste.
Add remaining butter , Bell Peppers , and Leeks continue to cook until leeks are very green in appearance and slightly tender.
