Lately we've been feeling pretty inspired by the best dark leafy green around : kale. Yesterday we put it in our vase and today we're putting it in our bowl. We stumbled upon this delicious Spicy Kale Soup recipe awhile back, made some modifications and voila - created what we think is a gluten free, spicy masterpiece!

Trader Joes has all the ingredients you'll need to make this soup. Here's the hit list:

spicy kale soup recipe

1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tbsp red pepper flakes
4 spicy chicken sausages (gluten free if you prefer)
2-3 sweet potatoes
1 large golden potato
14-oz can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
32 oz  low sodium chicken broth
1 bag kale

option to add:
1 jalapeño, diced
14 oz can black beans, drained

In a large pot (we love our le creuset)  heat olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes (and jalapeño if adding to the mix) Heat for about 1 minute. 

Slice the chicken sausages and heat in the pan until browned, around 5 minutes.

Add the chicken broth, sweet potatoes, golden potato and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil and then simmer covered for 12 minutes.

When the potatoes are tender, add the kale (and black beans if using). Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes until the kale is tender. 

Serve with salt and pepper and a spoonful of sour cream. Enjoy!
