Sausage Kale and Potato Soup

    50 min

    A hearty soup that will make you warm and toasty during the winter months. Potatoes are simmered with spicy sausagemeat, onion, kale, chicken stock and hot pepper sauce. If you like a thicker soup, mash a few of the potatoes whilst they are cooking. If you prefer a milder soup, use a non-spiced sausage and omit the hot pepper sauce.

    Makes: 8 

    • 4 large maris piper potatoes, peeled and quartered
    • 4 (115g) hot Italian sausages or any other highly flavoured/spiced sausages, casings removed
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 1 bunch kale, ribs removed, chopped
    • 3 litres chicken stock
    • 4 tablespoons hot pepper sauce

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
    2. Meanwhile, heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and stir in the sausagemeat. Break up the sausagemeat with a spatula and cook and stir until the sausagemeat is crumbly, evenly browned and no longer pink. Remove the sausagemeat to drain on a kitchen towel-lined plate.
    3. Stir the onion into the sausagemeat drippings; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the kale and cook and stir for 2 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock; stir in the sausagemeat and potatoes and return to a simmer. Stir in the hot sauce just before serving.

    I am the recipe submitter and would like to say that the sausage called for should NOT have the casings removed, that is not how I submitted it. Also I'd like to add that the amount of kale may seem like lots, however like spinach, it shrinks down quite a bit. Enjoy!  -  21 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added some heavy cream at the end of preparing this soup and found the dish absolutely superb - even after having froze the main body of the soup - still delicious!  -  08 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent soup... I used the ingredients as noted in the recipe but changed the process in cooking so that it was all within the same pot. Still worked out great! Nice flavors, great for a rainy night in.  -  16 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
