Hello, my name is Laura Breneman and this is not a fancy food blog and I do not like cheese.


Potato, Kale and Sausage Soup

Potato, Kale and Sausage Soup


I don't really makes soups that often, mostly because I'm not very good at it! For some reason they always turn out boring. So I only have a few go-to soups that I actually really like and this is one of them.

A friend made this once for a bunch of us one summer over at their house, and I snapped a picture of the recipe in the cook book they used so I don't have a link! I don't even know what book it was from!


1/2 lb sausage- half sweet Italian, half spicy italian

1 1/2 c chopped onion

1 Tbs Veg oil

4-5 small red potatoes , scrubbed and quartered ( unpeeled)

4-6 cups chicken broth

1-3 cups kale , ribs removed, leaves thinly sliced

1 cup milk

2 Tbs cornstarch- dissolved in 1/4 water

salt and peper to taste


1. Fry sausage until brown and crumbly , set aside.

2. In a medium soup kettle, saute the onion in the vegetable oil until soft.

3.Add the potatoes and the broth and bring to a boil.

4. Add the Kale .

5. Stir in the milk.

6. bring just to a boil. Stir in the cornstarch mixed with water. If you want a soup with more body, use an additional tablespoon of cornstarch.
