Introduction

Nuovo Southern Cooking using a great ingredient to create a fusion recipe that is fun and brings your family together. This is a great winter soup that's light and zesty. When I first heard of collard green soup, I thought..."I don't wan't any of that." But, it turned out to be one of my favorite soups. The collards add color and a subtle flavor to a Charizo sausage and onion base. Http://DrRichardClayton.com Watch me prepare the soup on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=289ZMVe1Cv8
