Sausage kale soup

I get a lot of recipe ideas from Woman's Day magazine. I've never been very good at soups, but one of their recipes I've made and tweaked and enjoyed. Sausage kale soup, and then jazzed up as scallop kale soup!

You will need:

  • 1/2 to 1 pound turkey sausage or 1 pound fresh or frozen scallops

  • 6 cups chicken broth (or turkey - I make mine, see the next post for how)

  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 12 to 16 ounces kale, stems removed and leaves chopped

  • onion and garlic

For sausage and kale soup:

Brown the sausage and then saute with the onion and garlic in olive oil (1 or 2 teaspoons).

Bring broth to a boil. Add the sausage, potatoes, and kale. Cook until the veggies are tender.

For scallop and kale:

Boil the broth. Add onion, garlic, potatoes, scallops. Cook a few minutes.

Add the kale. Cook until the veggies are tender. (Larger scallops require longer cook times - adjust cooking times to ensure the scallops are done.)
