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

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
Heat oil over medium heat in a large soup pot.
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.
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.
Season to taste with additional salt if needed (start with ¼ teaspoon.)
Serve with optional garnishes listed above and/or with a side of bread, crackers, or salad (macros not included.)
