Tuesday, October 2 – Sausage, Mushroom & Kale Soup
- 1lb raw Italian sausage (no Hillshire Farms or the likes, Whole Foods or Stop & Shop have a good Italian chicken sausage), casing removed (either slice the casing open with a knife or squeeze the meat out like toothpaste)
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 bunch of kale or swiss chard, remove the ribs going down the middle of the leaves, chop into small pieces
- 1 package button or cremini mushrooms, 1/4′d or buy pre-sliced to save some time
- 2qt chicken stock
In a soup pot, saute onions and sausage until the sausage is browned. Add the mushrooms, garlic and kale. Add the stock. Bring to a simmer and let the kale wilt and soften, this should take about 20 minutes.
