Soup for the Season: Smoked Sausage Soup

First, let me all wish you a Happy New Year! I hope 2017 is wonderful to you all! 

I have another frugal and delicious soup recipe for all of you! Smoked Sausage Soup is simple and delicious. I don’t even peel the potatoes because 1) it takes a lot of time and 2) there are so many vitamins in potato skins! Also, the skin is so thin on golden potatoes that you barely notice it! This recipe makes a little over 2 quarts of soup to feed your loved ones during the cold months. My fiance and little guy love this soup. 

To make Smoked Sausage Soup you will need:

2 tbsp oil

1/2 medium onion, diced

1 lb smoked or polish sausage, cut into rounds of similar thickness (**remember to cut these into semi-circles for any little ones, since full circle pieces can pose a cooking hazard**)

1 tsp minced garlic

1 quart chicken broth

1 quart water

1/2 can of diced tomatoes

3 cups golden potatoes, medium diced (I have also tried this with delicata squash and it was very good)

2 cans of white beans (either cannelini or great northern)

2 cups chopped kale

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1.  Heat up oil in a large soup pot to medium heat. Cook chopped onions until almost translucent.
  2. Put in the sausage and garlic. Brown the pieces of sausage.
  3. After the sausage is browned, add water, chicken broth, tomatoes, potatoes ( or squash), and beans. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes ( or squash) are tender.
  4. Once the potatoes ( or squash) are tender, add in the kale, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.
  5. Top with Parmesan cheese of desired and enjoy!
