Italian Sausage and Kale Soup and a Giveaway!

I don't know about you, but I love Kale. It is one of the healthiest vegetables around. Some of the health benefits of Kale include: cholesterol-lowering benefits, lowering your risk of getting caner, supporting the body's detox process, helps avoid chronic inflammation, and helps reduce your body's stress level.  

One of my favorite ways to eat Kale is in a good soup. This one is one of our favorites. It screams comfort food! 

Italian Sausage and Kale Soup
1 lb spicy Italian sausage 
2 large russet baking potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch slices 
1 large sweet onion, chopped 
2 cloves garlic, minced 
4 cups chicken broth 
4 cups water 
2 cups kale chopped 
1 cup heavy whipping cream 

Remove sausage casing (if it has casing) and place in a large stockpot. Add Onions and Garlic and cook until meat is browned. 
Add potatoes, chicken broth, and water in pot.
Cover and cook on medium heat until potatoes are done. 
About 15 minutes ones it reaches a boil. The last 5 minutes, add your Kale and Cream.
Salt and pepper to taste. 


Now if the recipe wasn't good enough. I have something even better!
