I’ve got your ideal winter-best-friend. It’s THIS Smoked Sausage Kale and Potato Soup! It’s cozy. It’s wintery. It’s so dang good. It’s a hug in a bowl.
…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.

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 really do. I totally adore the flavor and use them whenever possible. Life ain’t always about chicken and fish, you know? Live a little!

    BEST SOUP EVER! Can’t stop eating it. Can’t stop thinking about it. We love kale so we added twice the amount he recipe called fo but other than that, we followed the recipe to a T. Thank you for sharing this recipe…you’ve made it easier to face the colder months ahead.

  2. Kim

    I love this soup. It’s become a staple in our house. The only thing I do differently is use andoule sausage and add some frozen corn. The spices are wonderful. But I would love to make it without the sausage for my vegetarian friends. I really like Creole seasoning. Any suggestions as to how much to keep that wonderful spicy flavor?

  3. Haley

    I loved the soup! I added carrots and celery and some red pepper flakes just to my bowl. Next time I’ll make some crusty bread to go with it! Thanks!

  4. Pam

    I made this tonight, and it was really good. Even my husband loved it, and he really isn’t that fond of soup. I used milk because that’s what we use at home. I also thickened it up a bit by adding some flour and water. This is definitely a keeper.

  5. Amanda

    First of all, I love the soup! It tastes absolutely amazing. Although, I was wondering how you calculated the nutrition facts? When I added all the ingredients into My Fitness Pal’s recipe feature it calculates one serving as 277 calories, not 110.

  6. Maming this now and it amazing! I used savoy cabbage that needed to be used up and haf and half instead of soy milk. I also used my immersion blender on it for a creamy version

  7. One happy pregnant lady

    Love this!!! I added a little more smoked sausage and potatoes. I substituted the soy milk for half & half. Most definitely a Pinterest Win 🙂

  8. Mary

    Making this for the first time. Home sick with strep throat and looking for a recipe for kale and found this. Making with cauliflower instead of potatoes. Can’t wait to try it once it finishes cooking!!!

  9. Shannon

    Such a great recipe thanks for sharing. I used half and half instead of soy milk and I used a couple sprigs of rosemary because I love it, I Also used fresh thyme and some sliced white mushrooms that I was trying to use up. Will definitely make again!

  10. Stephanie

    Hi. Weird question, what would you suggest to eat with that?

    I’m asian so we pretty much eat everything with rice lol would it be good with rice?

    1. HI!! LOL! I understand completely! :))) I serve this with dinner rolls and a big salad, but I’m content with just a bowl of soup and the salad. You can also do grilled cheese sandwiches. Just an idea. 🙂

  11. Decia

    Hi! Is there a special reason why you use Soy milk instead of, say, 2% milk? I’m just wondering if I use regular milk, will it mess up the recipe? I don’t have Soy milk on hand.

    Thanks for this recipe; I can’t wait to try it!!

  12. Laura

    OBSESSED with this soup! It is super easy and tastes so amazing and comforting! I usually make it for dinner one night and then eat it for lunch for several days after. I also use smoked turkey sausage to make it a little healthier- still tastes incredible!! Even my husband will eat it who doesn’t usually like kale or soup for that matter

  13. Marie

    Wow, this is amazing soup. I usually skimp on the fresh herbs but this time I didn’t. I put in the rosemary sprig and thyme and that made the flavor soooooo good. I also made this non-diet with half&half and milk and added some mushrooms cuz I love them. Dang, I feel like a real cook after making this.

  14. Lyn

    I don’t like kale but this recipe will get me to eat my kale. The recipe is simple and the soup is amazing. This is one of my go to soups now. Thank you!

  15. Karen

    Great soup! I never make soup but I saw this and wanted to try it. It was delicious the first time out! So simple and quick, too. Thanks!

  16. Joyce Blodgett

    I love good soup, and this recipe strikes me as one that will be on my “gotta make it several times this winter” list. My landlady and I often share soups and casseroles (as well as some of my creatively made cheesecakes), and I think she’ll really like this one 🙂 Just because I like it so much, I’m going to add a good amount of baby spinach, and will use baby kale leaves instead of mature kale leaves. I’m just lazy, that’s all–baby kale is vastly easier to cook with.

  17. Rebecca

    Loved this soup!!! I didn’t have kale so I just did without and it was fine 😀 I also wanted it to be a little thicker so I added some cornstarch. It turned out amazing!!

  18. Eden Isaac

    Just finished making this, it’s sitting on my stovetop waiting for my husband to get home from work so we can consume it. I have taken several spoonfuls & it is so so yummy!
    Thank you for the delicious recipe! 🙂 🙂

  19. Molly

    This was delicious and so quick and easy to make. I made it a couple of weeks ago and look forward to making it again tonight. I love recipes that only require things I usually have on hand (kale, potatoes, onion, milk, broth, spices). Thanks for this great recipe!

  20. Nicole Bogas

    Wow, this was awesome. I used coconut milk to make it Whole 30-compliant, which I was a little worried about, but it turned out so delicious. I will be making this again for sure. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

  21. Ginna Germain Basile

    My daughter and I just made this, and it’s delicious. We added just a touch of heavy cream instead of the almond milk, and it turned out great. Thanks, for sharing!

  22. Joy

    Is it possible for the cards to be listed in the nutrition facts?
    I really would like to know for the sausage, kale, potato soup.

  23. Pam

    This had potential, but the broth was very thin and we ended up eating the kale, sausage and potatoes and throwing most of the broth away! I will make again but will add extra potatoes and then remove some to be blended and added back to the soup for texture. I think some corn cut fresh off the cob would be another nice addition.

    1. Ugh. SO sorry to hear that. 🙁 I really hope it works out for you the next time around. It’s a delicious soup – can’t really figure out why the broth was so thin. In any case, thank you for chiming in. Have a great day!

    1. Hi! Yes, absolutely. I do it all the time. Make sure to cool it completely, pour it into a large ziploc bag and freeze it.
      I pull it out the night before I want to use it and thaw it out in the fridge. Hope that helps! 🙂

  24. My husband took one look at this on the stove and refused to eat!!!! Ha-Ha luckily I had him try ONE bite!!!! It was all over with after that!!! He even took leftovers to work today!!!

  25. Kym

    I cooked this for dinner tonight and OMG it was soooo good! I had to alter the recipe to account for me not having all the ingredients but still turned out delicious. I used, light cream instead of milk and added some minced jalapeno for a little kick. Thank you for sharing :)!

  26. One of my favourite soup combos though I usually use hot Italian sausage links which I take out of the casing, crumble and fry. Next time I go shopping for the dish, I’ll keep an eye out for kielbasa, which I love.
