Kale Soup

By Scoop · Jan 11, 2012 · ·
  1. Scoop

    1/2 c. chopped onion
    1/2 c. chopped carrots
    1/2 c. chopped celery
    olive oil
    4 beef bouillon cubes
    4 chicken bouillon cubes
    8 or more cups of water
    1 lb. cubed potatoes
    1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced
    1 can red kidney beans
    8 c. kale, cut up

    Cooking Instructions

    Saute onion, carrots, celery in a small amount of olive oil in a very large soup pot, at least a 12 quart pot. Add bouillon cubes, water, and potatoes. Simmer 20 minutes. Add smoked sausage and red kidney beans. Mix. Then gradually add the kale, a little at a time, until it wilts and there is room to add more. The stems do not need to be used, but if they are, they will cook and get soft. Add water as needed and let it simmer until potatoes and carrots are tender. Ingredients can be increased to your liking. I usually add more carrots and potatoes.

    Sounds good and I planted a lot of kale this year. I'll be canning this one too. Thank you so much.
