Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup Recipe


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or butter
  • 2 onions diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to taste
  • 7 large potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 2 stalks of celery diced
  • 8-10 cups of chicken stock
  • 1 bunch kale diced into bite sized pieces, omitting the stem
  • 3-4 large links of chicken sausage cut into 1/4-inch half moons


  1. Brown the onions, garlic and chicken sausage in the oil in a large soup pot.
  2. Once the onions have started to carmelize, add in the remaining ingredients, except for the kale.
  3. Simmer on low until the veggies are tender.
  4. Turn off the heat and add in the kale and stir to completely submerge the kale.
  5. Let the soup rest for 10 minutes before serving, to give the kale a chance to soften and wilt. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. I love adding cayenne pepper to ours, but it does add quite a kick, so if you are serving this to little people, I recommend seasoning each bowl separately.
  7. We LOVE serving this with a healthy plop of sour cream in each bowl, but that can be omitted for a dairy free version!
  8. Serve with some crusty bread and enjoy!!!
