Kielbasa and Mixed Greens Soup


by Michelle K.      October-5-2012

If you need a nutritious and full flavored meal that comes together quickly, this soup will do the job very well. 

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb kielbasa sausage, pre-cooked, small dice
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, small dice
  • 1 cup kale, chiffonade
  • 1 cup bok choy, chiffonade
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chiffonade
  • 1 1/2 cups yukon gold potato, small dice
  • 6 cups chicken stock, vegetable stock, or even water
  • to taste kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 Tbs stone ground mustard

Instructions


  1. In a large soup pot over a medium-high flame, add the olive oil and onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until the onions begin to soften.
  2. Add in the diced kielbasa and stir frequently, getting just a bit of crisp on the sausage. Now add in your greens to the onion and kielbasa mixture, stirring frequently. Once the greens have begun to wilt, add in the chicken stock. 
  3. Add in the potatoes and bring the whole thing up to a boil. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper as needed. Quite often I find this dish does not need any additional salt due to what the kielbasa brings, so wait until you taste before adding any.
  4. Stir in the tablespoon of stone ground mustard and boil gently until the potatoes are done, 15 - 20 minutes. Serve this soup immediately with a slice of fresh bread. Any leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 4 - 5 days.
