SAUSAGE SOUP RECIPE

Many of you have been asking about my amazing sausage soup, so here is the recipe. You will need either a crockpot/slow cooker or a large pot.

  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage or turkey sausage (browned and drained)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 or 4 stalks of celery, diced (you can use more or less based on your tastes)
  • 3 or 4 carrots, diced (you can use more or less based on your tastes)
  • 1/2 pound of potatoes, cut into chunks – use whatever kind of potatoes you like: red, Yukon gold, Russet, white
  • 1 carton low-sodium beef or chicken broth (I like beef – use low sodium b/c the sausage has a lot of salt in it)
  • one can of white beans, rinsed and drained (yes, you need to add the beans)
  • 2 cups of fresh kale, roughly chopped (yes, you need to add the kale)
  • 1/2 C.  to 3/4 C. of heavy cream (add to taste)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a crockpot or large pot, add all of the ingredients except the kale, cream, and spices.
  2. If you are using a crockpot, set it on low, and let it cook for about 3 hours or until the potatoes are tender. If you are using a pot on the stove, simmer until the potatoes are tender. Do not boil.
  3. The last thirty minutes or so, add the kale and cream. Cook until the kale is wilted.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

P.S. If you really hate kale and/or beans, you can omit them from the recipe. This recipe makes quite a bit of soup. You can freeze it in individual portions and eat it another day.
