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.
