Recipe: Kale and Sausage Soup

Delicious spicy kale soup with sausage

Kale And Sausage Soup Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 2 cups water, or more as needed

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 3 bay leaves

  • 1 tablespoon dried sage, or more to taste

  • 1 pound ground hot Italian sausage

  • 4 red potatoes, or more to taste, chopped

  • 1 large bunch kale, stems removed and chopped

  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, quartered

  • 1 cup half-and-half

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

How to Make Kale And Sausage Soup

  1. Melt butter in a stockpot over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 3 minutes. Gradually whisk chicken broth and water into the roux, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, and sage; cook until the mixture has thickened onions are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess grease.

  3. Add sausage, potatoes, kale, and mushrooms to the stockpot. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes. Add half-and-half and season with salt and pepper.

Kale And Sausage Soup Reviews

  • This was so good I did add an extra can of chicken broth once all ingredients had been added. Otherwise, I followed instructions exactly. So simple and delicious

  • This soup was by far my favorite of the year. I actually substituted 3/4 C. uncooked wild rice for the potatoes and it was amazing

  • I made some modifications Along the way but it was a great soup. I added two more cups of chicken broth, I used 2/3 of a pound of chicken sausage and 2/3 of a cup of half-and-half. I also use mild sausage instead of hot and spicy for the kiddos. Personally, I would not add the half-and-half next time. Not because it was too thick but because I personally love clear broth soup.

  • This is a lovely base recipe for a soup I did end up adding some chicken bouillon, Italian seasoning, and a little crushed red pepper flakes at the end after having followed the instructions exactly to up the flavor. If I were to make this soup in the future Id definitely use spinach rather than kale, but thats just a personal preference. The whole family enjoyed this one
