AN EASY SOUP RECIPE LOADED WITH FLAVOR

I’ve got your ideal winter-best-friend. THIS Smoked Sausage Kale and Potato Soup is everything! It’s cozy, and wintery, and it is so dang good. A hug in a bowl, if you will …and all the feels that come with freezing temps outside, and comforting warmth inside.

But, first… HELLO, friends! How’s my favorite people?! Are you riding the resolutions-train? 6 days into 2016 and my smoothie game has never been better. I’m putting coffee in smoothies, chocolate, ice cream – which would make it a milkshake, so scratch that – yogurt, mint, etc… I’ll get to the best one, and when I do, I’ll share it with you.

My other game includes soups. Lots of soups. The Creamy Crab and Wild Rice Soup has made its appearance a few times in the past several weeks, as well as this Smoked Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup. Can’t forget about my Gnocchi Zuppa Toscana, either!

WHY DO I LOVE THIS SOUP RECIPE SO MUCH?

Occasionally I make a meal that I can’t stop thinking about. A meal that I want to eat thrice a day. A meal that I actually DID eat thrice a day and wanted more.

This soup is definitely one of those. It wasn’t anything overly special, besides the fact that it was incredibly simple and just tasted soooo dang good. Really good. It tasted great cold, reheated and every which way around. I like it. LOTS.

If you’re a freak like me, you might have 15 different kinds of smoked/Polish/kielbasa sausages in your fridge. Talk about weird obsessions. I.love.it. Mostly because of my Mom’s One-Skillet Sausage and Rice recipe, but also because I love ’em in soups. I totally adore the flavor, and use them whenever possible. Life ain’t always about chicken and fish, you know? Live a little!

  1. This recipe has been in our regular cold weather rotation for quite a while! We love it and love that it’s gluten free. We wrap the rosemary in cheesecloth so it imparts the flavor but the leaves don’t come off in the soup. Thanks so mich for the amazing recipe!

      That’s great to hear! I’m very glad you and your family enjoyed it! Thank you for chiming in! 🙂

  2. This really hit the spot. I used evaporated milk because I was almost out of regular milk. I added celery because I had some I had to use. I did not have kale, so I used spinach, but I didn’t put it in until a few minutes before I served the soup. I think next time I will use less olive oil. It was too greasy for me. I’ll probably only use butter. Thank you for the recipe.

    We REALLY enjoy this soup! Made it again today and this time I added bacon and some leftover shredded carrots. Also substituted half & half for the soy milk – yum!

  4. I made this last night and it was a huge hit! The soup is wonderful as the recipe is written but being from New Mexico, I added chopped green chile’s and bacon. Delicious!

  5. I cannot express how much I love this soup, it is so easy to make and so tasty. It’s my absolute favorite soup recipe.

    1. Love this soup, and have been using this recipe a few years now. I can also eat it three times a day 😂😂but I can’t find the polish sausage here, so substitute with Dutch smoked sausage and it’s also delicious 😋
