Total Time:30 minutes
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
16-ounces turkey sausage
12-ounces chopped kale, fresh or frozen
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
dash dried red chile flakes
32-ounces broth, chicken or vegetable
3 cups water
1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed
2 tablespoons red or apple cider vinegar
Soup: In a large pan over medium heat, heat oil and onion. Cook onion until softened, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes. Add garlic, cook one minute, stirring regularly. Add turkey and cook, stirring occasionally to break it up into large crumbles, until the sausage begins to brown, about 10 minutes. Add kale, thyme, chile flakes, broth, and water, bring to a boil. Stir, reduce heat to simmer the soup until kale is tender, about 10 minutes. Add beans and vinegar, stir, heat through.
Collard greens, Swiss Chard or spinach may be substituted for the kale. If the stems seem tough, trim them before cooking.
