Soup share Pt. 1

21 Oct

This year, my friends and I decided to start what we call a “soup share” program.  The idea of the soup share is simple.  At the beginning of the month, we each make a soup of our choosing. Then we provide equal sized portions of our soup to each of the participants.  So in the end, each of us will have five different kinds of soup to indulge in for the rest of the week. We devised this plan because we were all sick of making huge pots of soup and then being forced to eat the same old leftovers for one week straight.  With the soup share program, we are still able to cook and eat our favorite soups while also giving ourselves a little variety.  It also gives us a chance to swap new recipes and build upon our cooking repertoire.

For our October soup swap, I made this hearty sausage and kale soup.

1 lb Italian sausage (I like hot sausage)
2 large russet baking potatoes, sliced in half, and then in 1/4 inch slices
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 cup bacon
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups kale, chopped
2 (8 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 quart water
1 cup heavy whipping cream

1.  Crumble sausage into small pieces.
2.  Brown sausage and bacon on medium-high heat in your soup pot.
3.  Add chicken broth and water to pot and stir.
4.  Place onions, potatoes, and garlic in pot.
5.  Cook on medium heat for one hour then reduce to low heat.
6.  Add kale and cream.
7.  Cook for another 30 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
