Turkey Sausage and Kale Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 4 oz diced turkey bacon (we used “Butterball”)

  • 1 medium yellow onion (diced)

  • 1 13-oz package “Eckrich” smoked turkey sausage (sliced)

  • 8 cups kale (roughly chopped, stems removed)

  • 8 cups fat-free chicken broth

  • ½ cup “Bella Sun Luci” sun dried tomatoes (drained and diced)

  • 1 14-oz can petite diced tomatoes (drained)

  • 1 14-oz can Cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Optional garnishes: red pepper flakes, shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large soup pot.

  2. Add the diced turkey bacon and onion to the pot. Saute for 5-7 minutes, stirring often, or until onions are lightly softened and bacon is cooked through.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Bring to a simmer over high heat, reduce heat to low, and cook for 15-20 minutes. The soup is ready when the kale is wilted and softened.

  4. Season to taste with additional salt if needed (start with ¼ teaspoon.)

  5. Serve with optional garnishes listed above and/or with a side of bread, crackers, or salad (macros not included.)
