Kale, Sausage, and White Bean Soup

Meat, legumes, and a leafy green—what more could you ask for in a soup? To add even more color and sweetness, substitute diced winter squash for the potato. Whether you use potato or squash, add cooked pasta at the end and you’ve got minestrone!

Potato and Kale Soup 

We served this Potato and Kale Soup to the Almanac editors and everyone loved it! The soup is especially welcome in the winter months, when kale is at its peak.
