Default Sweet potato-sausage soup

Good all around recipe you can change up easily. Add some heat, try different greens or sausages, etc. I kept it basic so the kiddo would eat it it adding some pepper flakes just before the onions would be good.


Sweet Potato–Sausage Soup
serves 6 // active time: 20 min // total time: 40 min

If you like a little heat, swap in spicy Italian sausage for the sweet.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced large
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
3/4 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
2 sweet potatoes (1 pound total), peeled and diced medium
4 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup small pasta shells
4 cups roughly chopped mixed greens, such as kale and Swiss chard
grated Parmesan, for serving

1 In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes.

2 Add sweet potatoes, broth, and 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook 3 minutes less than package instructions. Reduce to a simmer, add greens, and cook until pasta is tender and greens are wilted, 4 minutes. Serve with Parmesan.

per serv (without Parmesan): 243 cal; 8 g fat (2 g sat fat); 15 g protein; 30 g carb; 3 g fiber
