Almost Tuscan Sausage and Kale Soup

"My boyfriend loves this recipe and even prefers it to the Tuscan soup at a well known restaurant! I adapted this from a diabetic-friendly recipe, if you want to make it that way substitute sweet potato for the yellow potato."

  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium heat until the oil shimmers; cook and stir onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, and black pepper until onion is translucent, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Mix sausage, basil, and paprika together in a bowl.
  3. Stir sausage mixture into onion mixture; cook and stir until sausage is browned and fully cooked, 5 to 10 minutes. Add chicken broth, kale, cannellini beans, and potatoes to sausage-onion mixture; lower heat to medium low. Cover stockpot and simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To speed cooking time, I usually steam the potatoes while I'm heating the oil and cooking the sausage. That way, I only have to heat the soup 10 more minutes once I mix in the potatoes with everything else. But if you have the patience it's worth it to cook the potatoes the slow way. Also, I love spices so I usually toss in a bit of cumin to cook with the onion and garlic.

I really liked this but it was still too salty with the reduced sodium broth. I'll go with no sodium next time. A great way to get in some healthy greens!
