Potato and Kale Soup with Italian Sausage

Inspired by the flavors of traditional Portuguese Kale Soup, we're creating a potato and kale soup with lean, hot Italian-flavored turkey sausage in place of chorizo. Let a pot of this soup simmer on the stove, or in the slow cooker, and you'll find your new favorite way to enjoy kale!

  • Potato and Kale Soup with Italian Sausage
  • Ingredients
    • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    • 3 tsp. garlic, minced
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 6 oz. Jennie-O® Hot Italian Turkey Sausage, cut in half lengthwise and sliced, or removed from casing and ground
    • 2 lbs. baby red potatoes, diced
    • 8 cups unsalted chicken stock
    • Salt, to taste
    • Black pepper, to taste
    • Pinch crushed red pepper
    • 1 bunch kale, trimmed, washed, and thinly sliced

    1. Heat oil a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté until softened, about 5-10 minutes. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. 1. To slow cooker, add sausage, onion, potatoes and chicken stock. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and crushed red pepper. Simmer on low heat for 6 hours. 1.
