Kale, White Bean, Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup

My taste palette is shifting to the savory, as the weather begins to shift to cooler temps.

are you finding this too?

this recipe is adapted from the back of a fava bean bag – something about it seemed like it would work with the kale and white beans i had on hand. add the sweet potato and italian sausage and this soup is seriously yummy.

I make my own beans, verses using canned. simply soak over night, simmered – one cup dried yields enough for my soup and enough for an additional jar of beans to freeze in the freezer.

Saute onion, garlic, and 3 links of italian sausage – i use mild, from a purveyor i trust who uses no additives and quality pork.

add cubed sweet potato, rosemary, basil, crushed red pepper flakes, and cracked black pepper

add 4 cups of stock- veggie or chicken, and 1 cup water – more if needed

add white beans, about 2 cups drained and a head of chopped kale

simmer until kale is wilted and potato is cooked through.

I’ve been promising to write this recipe up for here, i truly hope you enjoy!!
