I love a good kale, sausage and potato soup! Almost everything can taste good in a soup. One exception: dad used to make liverball soup (liver dumplings). It's a Czech thing and it is NOT good!

It's incredibly good for you - full of vitamins and minerals and very low in calories

As for the original topic - "Just Sayin'", substitute ocra, grits, or anything prepared with mint for the cauliflower.

Never tried battering and frying but it sounds good

I can get my vitamins and minerals in other ways, why eat something I do not like???

I'm old enough that I do NOT have to eat things I do not like. I'll sit over here with my spinach, kale and asparagus.

I'll swap you my spinach for your Brussels sprouts.

I never had kale. Since I like everything else mentioned I probably shouldn't press things.

I really don't like cauliflower, people keep telling me how good it is roasted, and I may try it that way, but I'm not convinced that it will be good...

It's like a whole different vegetable when it's roasted and caramelized. Some people call it cauliflower popcorn! Cut it into florets, and toss with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper at 425 - 450 F until browned. Call me in the morning. :)

You could try it with this recipe: Michael Symon's Orecchiette With Sausage & Swiss Chard - the chew - ABC.com. I've made this several times, using either kale or swiss chard. It's good both ways. Plus, with kielbasa in it, you can hardly tell there is something "good for you" like kale.

And give a generous sprinkle of freshly grated Parm over the thing when you take it out. Bueno!
