Zuppa Toscana

Hearty Soup For Dinner

This is another soup that my family loves, it is loaded with Kale, bacon, potatoes and hot and spicy sausages. It is very easy to prepare and satisfying. The spiciness of the sausages just give an extra oomph to the soup. My family always goes for second serving hence I always make one big pot to satisfy their appetite. This recipe is about 8 big servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 big bunch kinky Kale (leaves only)
  • 200 ml cooking cream
  • 3L Chicken Broth
  • 300g bacon chopped to 2 inches size
  • 1 pack hot and spicy sausage (6 pcs) chopped( I used Johnsonville Brand)
  • 4 medium size potatoes (cube)
  • 1 1/2 medium size yellow onion (chopped)
  • 1 minced garlic bulb

Method

  • In medium high heat, cook the bacon until crisp using your pot or dutch oven, no need to add oil. Let the fat from bacon render out. Set aside the bacon. Leave only about 2 tablespoon of oil from the bacon
  • Add the sausages, cook for about 5 minutes, add in the garlic and yellow onion, cook until the onion is translucent. Stir the pot constantly.
  • Add the broth, followed by the potatoes
  • Bring the soup to boil, continue cooking for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.
  • Add the bacon, followed by the kale. Cook until the kale softens.
  • Lower the heat, add the cream, and let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • Serve the soup on a bowl, topped with some crispy bacon.
