Smokey Sausage, Kale & Sweet Potato Soup

Rated as 4.84 out of 5 Stars

"This soup is so versatile that it works with whatever you have on hand. If you don't love chickpeas, use cannellini, black or kidney beans. Or, take them out altogether. If you don't like kale add swiss chard or spinach. Feel free to switch up the spices if you prefer something a bit tamer."

  • Ready In

  1. Drizzle olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until onions release some moisture, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, sweet potato, sausage, and chickpeas. Add paprika, coriander, chipotle powder, cumin, and salt. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  2. Pour stock into the pot and bring to a simmer. Cook until sweet potato has softened, 10 to 15 minutes. Taste for seasoning; add more salt, if needed. Stir in the kale (or spinach) and cook for 1 minute until kale has wilted. Ladle into bowls and top with cheese, if using, and freshly ground pepper.

I had to omit the garlic due to being married to a vampire, but otherwise I made this exactly as written and it is delicious!

This was delicious and I will definitely be making it again. You can do lots of things to change this up a little bit too. I was short a cup of stock but it still turned out great.

Absolutely delicious!!! I added some frozen corn I had on hand and used chicken Apple sausage instead of the smoked. Made brown rice on the side to added if wanted. I lOVED it!

I made it and my wife and I liked it very much. Chick Peas do not come in a 19 oz can. So I used one 15oz can and it was fine. The prep went well also, hardest part was dicing the sweet po...
