Easy Sausage and Potato Soup

Soups are one of my go to recipes on cold days but normally I don’t have all day to work on them. I like to have a recipe that can come together in 2 hours or less….hopefully less. This recipe is no different, you can start go from beginning to end in no time.

Soups are a great way to get in those extra veggies and protein and it seems there are always leftovers for easy lunches during the week. I love to make up a huge batch on the weekend to either freeze or feed us for a few meals.

I love this recipe because it requires very few ingredients or time, let me show you.

How to Make Easy Sausage and Potato Soup

Start by chopping up the onion, carrot and celery. When making soups these are my go to soup starters and then I go from there to make the rest.

Set the onion, carrot and celery aside and get your sausage going in a large pot. I use Niman Ranch Sweet Italian Sausage that I get from my imperfect foods. They have really good quality port products and taste great too.

Once your sausage starts to brown, add your onion, carrot and celery. I love to let the veggies cook for a bit in the sausage grease, it provides so much added flavor.

While the sausage and veggies are cooking take that time to chop up your kale and potatoes. When I cook with Kale I always pull the leaves off of the middle stalk. The middle stalk can be hard so it’s best to remove. Then just loosely chop the leaves and set aside.

Chop your potatoes into bite size pieces and set aside. I like to use the organic small red and yellow potatoes that come from Costco.

Once the sausage has cooked completely add your broth and salt. I either use bone broth or vegetable broth. Both work great, I like the health benefits of bone broth but the flavor of the vegetable broth is better to me.

After you have added the broth, add your potatoes and bring to a boil. Once brought to a boil turn down and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the veggies are soft.

When the vegetables are soft to your liking, remove soup from the heat and stir in the kale.

Let the soup stand for 10 minutes so that the kale can soften up and serve. You can serve with a salad or biscuits or BOTH! Enjoy 💖💖
