Sausage Potato Kale Soup


1 lb. sausage (I use spicy, sometimes sweet, your choice)
4 medium potatoes, cubed and peeled
1 large onion, diced
1/2 head of kale or swiss chard, (spinach if you can’t find one of the first), roughly chopped
4-6 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste


Brown 1 lb. sausage in a large pot

Add potatoes and onion. Add stock and simmer.

I like to let this simmer a few hours on the stove. It’s really good on an autumn/winter day with garlic bread and a glass of wine.


Just before serving, I like to add a touch of cream or milk, about 1/4 cup to round it out. It helps cut the heat in the spicy sausage, although not necessary.

You can use gluten-free bread if avoiding gluten or skip the bread all together.
