After feeling a bit under the weather yesterday morning, I made this tasty soup for dinner. The recipe was originally from a restaurant knock-off cookbook, but I’ve changed it quite a bit. This is my husband’s favorite soup. I find that one of the best ways to love and serve him is to cook the things that he likes. Its one of the ways that I enjoy honoring and respecting him.
2 3/4 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. heavy cream
1 medium russet potato
2 cups chopped kale
1/2 lb. Italian sausage
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1) Combine chicken broth and cream in saucepan over medium heat.
2) Slice potato into 1/4 in slices, quarter them, and add to soup.
3) Cut sausage into 1/2 in thick slices and saute until done in skillet; add to soup.
4) Boil chopped kale in enough water to cover it IN A SEPARATE POT. The original recipe says to add the kale directly to the soup, but I’ve found that it makes your soup taste way too “green.”
5) Add seasonings and let simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
6) Drain the kale and stir into the soup just before serving.
(I don’t always let it cook for 2 hours, and it still tastes good)
