Fall Vegetable Soup
Contributed by: Annelle Williams
  • 1 lb. turkey sausage
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 leeks, cut into 1-inch rings (white part only)
  • 4 cups roughly chopped kale, center stem removed
  • 1 TBS dried mixed Italian herbs
  • 1 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 (15 oz.) can small diced tomatoes (don’t drain)
  • 1 (15oz.) can great northern beans
  • 1 (32oz.) chicken stock, plus more if needed
  • 1 cup wheat or soy penne pasta
  • salt to taste
  • shredded parmesan cheese to garnish
Add olive oil to soup pot over medium heat. Sauté sausage and onions in olive oil. While sausage is cooking, slice leeks and put in bowl of water to wash.
Separate rings and swirl around to remove dirt. Squeeze water from leaks with your hands and stir into soup pot.
Remove center stem from kale, roughly chop and wash in bowl of clean water. Squeeze out water with hands and add to soup pot. Stir and cook until kale is wilted.
Add tomatoes, beans, and chicken stock. Bring back to a simmer and add pasta. Cook for another ten minutes until pasta is done (add more stock if needed). Taste for salt and serve garnished with parmesan cheese.
