Butter or oil
1 onion, sliced into thin rings
1-2 pounds of your favorite sausage, cooked in crumbles or slices (I used half italian sausage, half Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage)
4-8 cups of chicken broth (if you use less chicken broth, you'll need to add a few cups of water.)
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Fresh or Dried Parsley
Salt + Pepper (1 teaspoon of each)
1-2 Large Sweet Potatoes, cubed
5-7 Kale stalks, chopped into strips
ONE: Heat about two tablespoons of oil/butter in soup pot. Add the onion rings and cook for a few minutes.
TWO: Add the rest of the ingredients except the kale (all the spices are "to taste," but start with 1 tablespoon or so.)
THREE: Let the pot simmer with the lid on until boiling. Remove the lid and add kale (if you do it sooner the leaves get kind of slimy and weird-texture-y.) Simmer with lid off until you're ready to eat and potatoes are cooked!
ps. It's a wonderful idea to add some grated mozzarella or parmesan cheese when served.
It's spicy, it's different, it's cozy, it's filling, it's best reheated the next day once all the flavors have spent the night together (sinners.), it's just a really good, easy little soup.
