A kale soup recipe that's quick? Yes, I've got two here. One has the traditional German flavors of kale and sausage ... real down-home goodness. With extra veggies to make it extra good. The delicious earthiness of the kale really shines through. It's perfect for my "meat-and-potatoes" hubby. Filled with lots of goodness, it really satisfies.
This second one is vegan ... also super simple to make. Not traditionally German, but surprise, it's something even my hubby enjoys! It has lovely sweet potatoes, carrots and celery which round out the flavor. A pinch of cayenne to spice it up if you wish. You choose just how 'hot' you want it.
Both of these soups use canned or jarred kale. That's what makes them so super simple and quick. Check what "Oma says" below if you're using fresh kale. It's not that much more work and it's just that bit more healthy. Either way, you'll have a super simple kale soup recipe you'll be making often.
1. Kale & Sausage Sausage ❤️
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1½ lb potatoes, peeled, cut into ½-inch cubes
2 carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 lb smoked sausage, sliced
6 cups chicken or vegetable broth
28 oz can kale
salt and pepper to taste
In a large soup pot, heat the oil and add onion. Cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook a further minute.
Add potatoes, carrots, celery, sausage, and broth.
Bring to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the veggies are tender.
Add canned kale (drain if there is a lot of liquid). Bring to simmer. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
Put sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic, broth, and water into a large saucepan.
Bring to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
Add canned kale (drain, if there is a lot of liquid). Bring to simmer. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
Makes about 6 servings.
Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
A bit of this and a bit of that ...
Add a pinch of cayenne if you'd like this a bit spicy.
Use a potato masher to mash the soup slightly if you like the texture of the soup to be thicker rather than brothy.
Have other veggies in the crisper? Use what you have, omit what you don't. Cauliflower, broccoli, and parsnips would be great.
Try adding a bit of lemon juice to the finished soup.
Don't have canned kale available?
Use a large bunch of fresh kale instead. Wash it well. Roughly chop the kale and add it to the soup once the potatoes have cooked for about 10 minutes.
Continue to simmer soup until kale is tender and no longer bitter
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
