Great Recipe - Sausage, Bean & Kale Soup

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/4 lbs. Italian sweet turkey sausage (squeezed from casings or bulk)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 carrot chopped
1 large potato, peeled and chopped into small dice
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bay leaf
2 cans white beans, drained
4 cups chopped kale
2 quarts chicken stock (vegetable stock is good, too)
salt & pepper
grated paremsan or romano cheese
  1. Heat medium soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and sausage and brown.

  2. Add veggies, bay leaf and beans. Season with salt and pepper. Cook mixture 5 minutes to begin to soften the vegetables. Add kale and wilt.

  3. Add stock and cover pot. Raise heat and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 15 minutes.

  4. Adjust seasonings and serve soup with grated cheese, for topping.
Servings: 10
