Kielbasa soup with potatoes

Kielbasa soup with potatoes is a hearty and flavorful dish that’s perfect for a comforting meal. Here’s a simple recipe to make it at home:


  • 1 lb kielbasa sausage, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups kale or spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream (optional)
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced kielbasa sausage and cook until browned, about 5-6 minutes. Remove the sausage from the pot and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the diced onion and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute, until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, scraping the bottom of the pot to loosen any browned bits. Add the diced potatoes, sliced carrots, diced celery, dried thyme, and dried oregano. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Bring the soup to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked, return the browned kielbasa sausage to the pot. Stir in the chopped kale or spinach and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the greens are wilted.
  6. If using, stir in the heavy cream to add richness to the soup. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  7. Serve the kielbasa soup hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.

This kielbasa soup with potatoes is comforting, filling, and full of flavor. It’s perfect for chilly days or whenever you’re craving a satisfying meal. Enjoy!
