I use Italian turkey sausage. I use frozen chicken or turkey broth but you can buy canned.
When I can't find Italian sausage in bulk, I just buy links and remove the casings. A kitchen shears is a must for SO many kitchen cutting tasks.
Kale is a really healthy vegetable and the "green" of this soup. Wash the leaves and use about half the bunch for this recipe.
Coarsely chop and brown sausage.
This vegetable peeler is also a great tool!
Add sliced onion toward the end of browning and simmer till tender.
Peel potatoes. Wash carrot.
Cold water helps keep potatoes from turning brown before use.
Add broth, water and diced potatoes to sausage/onion mixture. Simmer JUST until potatoes become tender.
Cut washed kale into 1" pieces.
Add milk, kale, salt and very thin carrot slices and stir over heat just a couple minutes till Kale softens. Do not overlook. Serve.
Another of our favorite healthy soups with a tasty broth and lots to chew too!
