To Have Some Soup


     Hi readers! I have a delicious, hearty, and comforting soup recipe for you today! Part of powering through the frigid weather of January is staying warm and comfy. I just knew I should do a soup this month. This recipe is adapted from one in Myriad, Kristen's cookbook that she created with a few of her classmates for their senior capstone project. They are graphic designers, so of course the book is beautiful, but the recipes are also healthy and delicious! I tried out this soup when Kristen's mom, Susan, made it, and it was too good to not try on my own. It's perfect for warming up at the end of the day. As well as healthy and clean, it is also seasonal due to the kale! It definitely meets all of my criteria for the perfect winter soup. Try it out with the recipe below and head on over to Kristen's site to order an eBook version of the cookbook!


- 5 red potatoes

- a large bunch of baby kale

- half an onion, diced

- 1 lb. of sausage (mine was sage)

- 2 garlic cloves

- 2 8oz. cans of chicken broth

- 4 cups of water

- 1 cup of Greek yogurt


Step one - Peel your potatoes if you like (I left the skin on mine because it doesn't bother me). Chop them in half and then quarter them. Set aside. 

Step two - Chop up your sausage and cook in the pot you are using for the soup on medium high heat until brown and cooked through.

Step three - Add your broth and water and bring to a boil. Then, add your onions, potatoes, and garlic and cook for 15-18 minutes.

Step four - Lower the heat and add in the kale and Greek yogurt. Cook for a couple of minutes, until kale is tender, and then you're done! Serve warm, and preferably (for me, at least) with a a grapefruit Izze.
