SPICY CHICKEN SAUSAGE AND KALE HARVEST SOUP
Ingredients:
Makes 4 servings

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
4 gluten-free spicy chicken sausages (ours had jalapenos)
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 large gold potato, peeled and diced
2 large diced carrots
1 diced onion
1 14-oz can organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, with juice
1 32-oz carton organic chicken or vegetable broth (low sodium if possible)
1 bunch kale
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste, if needed
Instructions:

In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes; stir for 1 minute.

Quarter the sausages lengthwise; then slice into pieces. Add the sausage to the oil; cook the sausage for 5 minutes, until browned.

Add potatoes, carrots, diced tomatoes, onions and broth; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer, covered for 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, wash the kale, shake off the water and tear off the tough stems. Tear larger pieces into small pieces.

When the potatoes are tender add the kale to the pot and lightly simmer, covered, until the kale is tender and wilted- about 10 to 15 minutes.
