Turkey Sausage and Kale Soup

Turkey Sausage and Kale Soup – A delicious, meaty soup.

Turkey Sausage and Kale Soup

1 pound ground turkey sausage (I just remove the casings and crumble the meat in the pan)
1 1/2 tsp crushed red peppers
1 large white onion, diced
4 Tbsp turkey bacon, diced
2 tsp garlic, minced
8 cups chicken broth
3 large potatoes, sliced
2 cups kale


  1. Saute Italian sausage and crushed red pepper in a large pot. Remove from pan and drain excess fat, refrigerate while you prepare other ingredients.
  2. In the same pan, saute the onion, bacon and garlic over low-medium heat for approximately 15 minutes or until the onions are soft.
  3. Add chicken broth to the pot and heat until it starts to boil.
  4. Add the sliced potatoes and kale, cook until soft, about 20 minutes to half an hour.
  5. Stir in the sausage, let all heat through and serve. Delicious!

I made this soup as an alternative to my husband’s favorite soup. He loves the Zuppa Toscana soup at Olive Garden, I would make him that soup as close as I could to match the Zuppa Toscana and I like to think I got pretty close:) He loves it, however I decided to try the soup by omitting the heavy cream, hoping to make it a little healthier and he loves this soup just as much. So, now we make this soup instead, it is a very meaty, hearty, delicious soup.
