food (food) | turkey sausage, potato & kale soup

I love kale and turkey sausage, so combining those two ingredients together, you can guarantee it's a dish I always go back for seconds.  Inspired by Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana, I came up with my own modified (and healthier) version that doesn't require heavy cream.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 package of turkey kielbasa sliced (Chicken andouille sausge is also a good substitute)
  • 1 bag or bundle of chopped kale (I sometimes like having bigger chunks of kale so I'll break the leaves by hand vs. knife)
  • 1 chopped yellow onion
  • 2 boxes of chicken broth
  • 1 peeled and thinly sliced potato
  • 1 tbsp worschester sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat.
  2. Add onion and saute for about 2 minutes before they start to become translucent.
  3. Add potato to onion and 1/2 tbsp of salt and pepper.  Saute for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add sliced turkey sausage and kale to mixture in the pot.*  Stir until all ingredients have been evenly mixed together.
  5. Add both boxes of chicken broth and worschester sauce.  Mix and lower heat to medium-low.  
  6. Let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes and serve.
*If you enjoy a little bit of spice add 1 tbsp of red pepper chili flakes to this step.

I really love soup, but my husband doesn't like it too much. I also really love thin soups, but only know how to make chicken noodle. Gotta try this-- it's got yummy kale!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
