Soup: Kale, Sausage, and Vegetable

30 Dec

Last night I had the urge to try to make kale into an interesting dinner. My small group later made a kale and sausage soup a few times but I couldn’t remember the recipe so I made it up 🙂 Some family and I had it for lunch today and they all loved it almost more than I love it!

Olive Oil

1 small sweet potato, diced

1 package Hormel Naturals Smoked Turkey Sausage, sliced

1 sweet onion, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

2 cups chopped mushrooms

1 can Great Northern Beans

1 can vegetable broth

3-4 cups water

3-4 leaves of kale (strip kale off its stem and teat into bite-sized pieces)



  1. Bring a pan with ~1 TB olive oil to medium heat
  2. Cook sweet potatoes all the way through
  3. Add sausage, onion, bell pepper and cook through.
  4. Add mushrooms, beans, vegetable broth, and water. (Enough water to make it as soup-y you would prefer.)
  5. Bring soup to a boil and then turn down to low and cover.
  6. About 10 minutes before serving, add the kale.
  7. Add spices to taste. I used salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper, cumin, garam masala, and some Worcestershire sauce…it was pretty tasty. 🙂 You can change the spices to change the flavors of the soup, though.
  8. Simmer as long as you’d like!
