Sausage Kale Garden Soup

Sausage Kale Garden Soup

This soup is so good.  

I planted 2 types of Kale this year - regular and Russian (which is really peppery)

All I do is take a scissors and cut off the tops.  Hopefully it will grow again like lettuce.  

Brown a pound of pork sausage - ours home raised.

Add garlic and onions

Saute onions and garlic with sausage.  Add 2 cups diced celery and 2 cups diced carrots with meat mixture.

Add 5 cups chicken broth and 5 cups of water

Add 2 cups peas

Add 2 cups cooked rice

Wash kale and pull the leaves through your hand to remove the stem.  I tore the leaves into smaller pieces.  Add 3 cups of kale.

The soup was hot, so once I added the kale I turned it off and just put the lid on to wilt the kale.  

This makes a huge kettle of soup - I'm feeding some extra girls tonight.  You can adjust the amount or freeze it.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Hi Jacky! The soup looks delicious! I'm amazed that most of the ingredients came from your farm! I hope to grow kale this fall, and the pork, I'll just have to buy some! Guess we can't have it all! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!
