I needed to add some green to the day’s menu plan so I whipped up a batch of soup today with what I had in the fridge……..kale and 2 turnips. It was a simple soup, quick to make and very tasty! This soup is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets, Primal and Paleo as well.

12 oz. pork breakfast sausage
3 oz. red onion, sliced or chopped
2 c. turnip, cut into large cubes
1 medium stalk celery, sliced coarsely
1½ c. kale leaves, stemmed, coarsely cut up
6 c. homemade chicken broth
Dash each sea salt and coarse black pepper
DIRECTIONS: Coarsely crumble the sausage into a soup pot and lightly brown with the onion. There should be enough grease in the sausage to accomplish this. Add all remaining ingredients. Bring pot to a boil and lower heat, simmering just until turnip pieces are tender but not falling apart. Kale sill be fully cooked at this juncture. Serve at once.
VARIATION: Add 3 T. rice wine vinegar to the pot during simmering for a slightly different taste. Another variation would be to use ground beef instead of pork sausage. Again, a slightly different taste. 🙂
