This is one of my husband’s favorite soups I make. Which is kind of humorous because I’m pretty sure if he had ever tried kale by itself he NEVER would have tried this soup knowing that it’s in it. This is great for the cooler autumn nights, and make for a quite easy dinner, and delicous to boot. I like to pair it with warm homemade bread and everyone is happy.
POTATO SAUSAGE SOUP
Recipe by My Stained Apron
1/2 lb Italian sausage
2 medium russet potatoes
1/2 large white onion, chopped
1-2 T olive oil, optional
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 c chopped kale or escarole
5 cups chicken broth
1/4 c whipping cream
Brown the sausage in a pot over medium heat, breaking it up.
Cook through. Drain fat. Add onions and olive oil, if needed.
Cook until onions are tender and add garlic. Cook for another minute.
Add chicken stock. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and slice about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
Add potatoes to pot and simmer about 20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.
If soup seems too thick, just add more chicken broth.
To chop kale, fold leaves in half and remove center rib.
Chop the rest of the leaves.
Add to pot along with the cream.
Simmer until hot again, about 5 to 10 minutes.
