Now that the weather outside has turned a bit colder, I wanted to share with you one of my family’s favorite soup recipes. Zupa soup is a creamy hearty soup that is sure to warm you up when temperatures plummet. If you need this to be dairy free as well you can substitute soy milk for half and half, just make sure the soy milk is unsweetened. As always, please read all ingredient labels carefully because our customers continued health and well-being is of utmost importance to us.
You will need:
1lb ground spicy Italian sausage
1 ½ tsp crushed red pepper
1 large diced white onion
½lb Hormel thick sliced bacon chopped into small pieces
2tsp Christopher ranch garlic puree
2 boxes kitchen basics chicken stock
2 cups half and half
4 large potatoes sliced
½ of a bunch of fresh kale
In your soup pot sauté the spicy Italian sausage and crushed red pepper. Drain excess fat, remove the sausage from the pot and refrigerate it while you prepare the other ingredients. In the same pot sauté bacon, onions, and garlic together until onions are soft should take roughly 15 minutes. Once your onions are soft add your chicken stock. Bring it to a boil then add your potatoes, cook until soft usually takes about half an hour. Add your half and half and cook until heated all the way through. Stir in your pre cooked sausage. Add your kale moments before you serve the soup (don’t add it too soon or it will become soggy). Hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!
