DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add 3 cups of the broth, potatoes, and 1/2 tsp salt. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. (At this point, the soup can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days. When ready to serve, bring the soup to a simmer and proceed with the recipe.) Remove the pot from the heat and mash the potatoes in the liquid with a potato masher.
  • until no large chunks remain and the potatoes thicken the stew slightly.
  • Return the pot to medium-high heat. Add the remaining 3 cups broth, sausage, and savory and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer to blend the flavors, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove and discard the savory. Stir in the kale and simmer until just tender, about 5 minutes. Adjust the seasonings with salt & pepper to taste. Serve immediately, drizzling each portion with olive oil, if desired.
