This so great!! My picky husband loved this so much. I drained the sausage and onions after cooking to cut back on the grease and substituted rice for the potatoes because he can't have them on his kidney diet. I also added chopped celery, just because it was in the fridge. Thanks so much for this!
This soup is delicious! I agree with Sackville about the fat, I drained the sausages on a paper towel and poured most of the excess oil out of my pan, leaving just enough to infuse some flavour into the potatoes. The end result was quite pleasing, I love how the bitterness of the kale disappears altogether once it's simmered with the sausages for a while. Crusty bread is an absolute must. Thanks for sharing rg!
this is such a good soup.. i ate it all the time when i lived in spain... it is really yummy if you add chickpeas (garbanzo beans) to it too
