Potato, Sausage & Kale Soup

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Well, another soup recipe, what a surprise! 

It's been so cold around where we live and since soup is always so comforting that's pretty much what I've been cooking a lot lately. I hope you'll enjoy it! Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

Ingredients (4-6 servings):
1 lb. sweet Italian sausage
6 medium/large red potatoes (peeled, cut in half, sliced thinly)
1 white onion, diced
1 cup baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch kale (washed and chopped)
2 chicken bouillons
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and black pepper

In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium/high heat. Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes, cook for about a minute. Add the sweet italian sausage, cook until crumbly and brown in color. Add diced onions, let it cook until translucent. Add the potatoes, 2 chicken bouillons and about 5-6 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer until potatoes are tender. Add the mushrooms and kale. In a small dish, combine flour and butter (it should be like a paste). Add the flour and butter mixture to the pot, this will help the soup to thicken a little. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Serve hot and enjoy!
