White Bean and Kale Soup

I just finished the pot of white bean and kale soup that I made a couple of days ago. It got better each day!

White Bean and Kale Soup

2 large links of smoked turkey sausage, cut into cubes
1 large onion, minced
8 kale leaves washed, spines cut out, and cut into small pieces
3 cans of white beans, drained
2 cans chicken broth
1 cup milk
1 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
dash cayenne pepper

Blacken smoked turkey sausage in a stew pot with 1 T of olive oil. Set aside. In the same pot, saute onion and kale leaves with 1 T olive oil until tender. Scrape up the blackened turkey bits from the pan. Add 1 & 1/2 cans of beans. Mash with potato masher until beans are mushy. Add remaining whole beans and all ingredients, including blackened turkey. Stir. Simmer for 15 minutes, but do not boil. Garnish with a dolup of sour cream and chopped chives. Serves 6-8.

    I LOVE soup! It’s one of my favorite things about the fall. This soup looks delicious-I really must add kale or spinach or some kind of greens to almost all my soups. I will most definitely be trying this one. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Bonnie!

    Thanks. I’m going to the store today. Can’t wait to try it. Have any other goodies you want to share?

    I will be posting more recipes… just things I have developed or combined several recipes together in the next weeks. I didn’t know there was such an interest!

    I hope it turns out for you. I have only kitchen tested this twice, so it may still need some adjusting.
