Soup’s On!

29 Jan

On these brutal winter days, are you in need of a new dinner recipe? Here’s a soup recipe that’s delicious, healthy, and bound to chase away the chill. It’s awesome served with crusty bread, your favorite grilled sandwich, or cornbread.

Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup

1 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large sweet onion, finely diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper
1 lb. ground Italian sausage
3/4 C. acini de pepe pasta
6 C. chicken broth
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced small
5 C. kale greens, chopped small

Heat oil in a large pot (medium heat). Add onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Sautee for 5 minutes. Add ground Italian sausage and cook thoroughly. Break up any large pieces of sausage with your spoon.

In another pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the acini de pepe pasta to the boiling water and cook according to directions. Drain the pasta.

Add chicken broth and sweet potatoes to the pot with the sausage. Bring to a boil. Add the cooked, drained pasta. Add the chopped kale. Cover until greens are cooked, about 5 minutes. Turn off, cover, and let rest. In 15 minutes, stir well, then serve.

    We love soup in the winter too. I have to admit … I’ve never eaten kale. Nope. Not once. But I love sweet potatoes! Is the type of pasta important? I’ve never heard of this kind. Maybe we don’t have it in the wilds of Northern Michigan.

    I love soup, but I’m with Pegg–I’ve ever had kale. Wouldn’t even know where to look in the grocery store.
