Sausage, Kale, & Sweet Potato Soup

Sausage, Kale, & Sweet Potato Soup

It has been quite dreary here in North Carolina these past few days.  As a remedy for the bad weather blahs, I decided to make one of my favorite soups.  This is a relatively easy recipe that doesn’t have to simmer very long.  It has loads of flavor and is great for leftovers as well.  Happy cooking!

Sausage, Kale, & Sweet Potato Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 pound mild sausage (I buy pastured pork sausage from PTB Farm)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 bunch of kale, spines removed and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons each of oregano, basil, marjoram, and pepper
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into small chunks
  • 5 or 6 small turnips, cut into chunks (I prefer white salad turnips)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • 4 cups of broth (I make homemade broth)

Directions

  1. Brown the sausage and onions in a large soup pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the potatoes, turnips, and all other ingredients to the pot.
  3. Stir everything together and bring to a simmer.  Turn the temperature down to medium low and let the soup continue to simmer until the potatoes and turnips are tender (about 20-30 minutes).

Possible Modifications:

  1. Don’t have sweet potatoes or turnips?  Try using whatever root vegetables you have on hand.
  2. The kind of sausage you use in this recipe will also make a difference.  Want it a little spicy?  Use hot sausage.  Want extra flavor without all the heat?  Try using chorizo or italian sausage.

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
