Lori’s Kale Soup (by popular request)

Standard

portuguese-kale-soupLWC member Lori Martin’s kale soup was such a big hit at the annual blood drive that she had to promise to share it with others. However, please keep in mind that Lori uses the following info as a guideline only, and relies on her own instincts for the finished product. We encourage you to do the same.

  • 1 cup each chopped onion, celery and carrots
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced

Saute together in a little olive oil until soft.

    • Chop a package of chicken sausage (chipotle chorizo flavor) and add to pot
    • Add 4 qts chicken stock and 2 bay leaves
    • Chop 5-6 potatoes and a large bunch of kale and add to the pot
    • Simmer together until potatoes are tender.
    • Adjust seasonings to taste.
    • Add 1 can of cannelini beans.

    Serve hot with crusty bread for a healthy hearty meal!
