A colorful and delicious soup medley of sliced turkey sausage, fresh kale leaves, and potato chunks. This soup is simple and flavorful and we love it!

1. In a large stock pot, brown sausage slices.
2. Add onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes, until onion is translucent. Add broth and bring to a boil.

My mom found this recipe for Turkey Sausage Kale Soup in a Woman's Day magazine in the waiting room at her dentist's office last winter. Knowing the abundance of kale growing in her garden, she copied down the recipe and brought it home. The soup is delicious, and a perfect way to enjoy kale throughout the cooler months!
