Smokey sausage, potato & kale soup
Updated: Feb 9, 2022
This was absolutely delicious! I wouldn’t change a thing about it! Even my toddler loved it! Served with warm bread - yum!
1lb smoked beef sausage or kielbasa, sliced 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced 4-6 cloves minced fresh garlic 1 heaped teaspoon sweet smoked paprika 4 medium potatoes, cubed (or 4-6 cups cauliflower florets for those watching carbs) 32 ounces no sodium chicken bone broth (I buy these in bulk to always have on hand) 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or half & half 4 cups roughly chopped tuscan or curly kale lots of fresh ground black pepper to taste
Bring a large heavy bottomed saucepan to medium heat. Add the sliced sausage directly without any oil, it’ll render its own oil. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until golden then add onion and garlic, stirring and cooking for 5 minutes until onions are translucent and garlic fragrant.
Add 1 heaped teaspoon smoked paprika, potatoes and bone broth. Place the lid on and cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through and soft enough to mash a few with the back of a fork. This will thicken the soup up a bit, so have some more stock ready if you feel it’s not soupy enough.
Add the kale and heavy cream, lower heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes until kale is wilted. Divide amongst your family and serve with some fresh black pepper tableside.
