Recipe: Kale Kielbasa and White Bean Soup

My husband RAVED about this soup!  I followed the original recipe almost exactly, but added a little rosemary and cayenne.

Serves 4

  • 2 T. ghee or tallow1 bunch kale, stems removed and discarded (I used 1 pint home-canned kale)
  • 8 oz kielbasa sausage, sliced thin.
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (15.5 oz) can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. ground dried rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 t. cayenne or to taste

Roll kale leaves into tight tubes and cut crosswise into 1/4" strips.

Heat ghee in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat.  Cook kielbasa in hot ghee until browned, about 5 minutes.  Stir in green onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.  Add kale and cook until kale wilts, about 3 minutes.

Pour chicken broth over, add beans and stir.  Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until kale is completely tender, about 15 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.
