When the temperature drops, there’s nothing better than a bowl of delicious soup to warm you up. But this soup is a standout, with kale and potatoes as the main ingredients. Choose a sausage that delivers lean protein, such as turkey. This healthy and simple rustic soup has a lightly creamy consistency, which comes from blitzing half of the soup in the blender. Even when you’rewatching your calories, you can still enjoy bold flavors in your bowl.

- 3 turkey sausages, sliced (nitrate-free)
- 3 cups chopped kale
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 clove garlic, halved
- 4 cups vegetable broth, low sodium preferred
- 1/4 teaspoon (or about 2 turns of the grinder) freshly cracked black pepper
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Prick the sausages with the tip of a knife then brown them in a saucepan or a griddle with very little oil if needed over medium heat. When they are cooked through, slice them.
In the slow cooker, put the sausages, potatoes, kale, broth, garlic and pepper.
Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours or high 2 to 3 hours. After it is cooked, discard the garlic.
Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil before serving.
