Quick Recipe: Bacon, Kale, & Turkey Stew — Recipes from The Kitchn: 3/5/2015 we had a smoked turkey drum, only had half the kale (baby) so add baby spinach as well. The bacon was quite lean so I added some butter to augment the fat quotient. We also added four carrots, diced. We like the added veg and it added to the color. The smoked turkey was quite pink, the bright green of the greens, and the orange of the carrots. Definitely would do it again.
Sausage Barley Soup Allrecipes.com (Slow Cooker 6-8 hours on low) Reviewers suggested increasing the barley (triple or quadruple) and adding fresh spinach at the end of the cook time instead of the frozen at the beginning. Others also added in a can of Italian tomatoes.
