DIRECTIONS

  • In a large stockpot or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat, and saute the kielbasa and ham for 5-6 minutes, until browned. Add the onions and saute for a few minutes more, until they are softened. If at any time the pot is looking dry, add a splash of stock to continue the saute.
  • Next add the stock and the black pepper and bring to a boil.
  • When boiling, add the potato flakes, stirring until dissolved.
  • Add the kale and cabbage, then lower the heat to simmer and cover.
  • Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the cabbage and kale are tender. Add the drained and rinsed beans, then simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Before serving, taste and add salt as needed. (It shouldn't need any as prepared stock and the smoked meats have plenty, but use your own judgment and add some if you deem it necessary.) Yum!
