Sweet Potato Turkey Sausage Minestrone Soup

Recipe by

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cups celery, chopped
  • 2 pounds fresh or frozen sweet potatoes, cubed (around 1 inch)
  • 4 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 package Polish turkey sausage, sliced (I use Eckridge Farm Smoked)
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can rinsed Great Northern beans or butter beans
  • 3 tablespoons Italian spices
  • 4 cups chicken broth + 1 cup water
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch fresh kale (stripped from stem) or 1 package frozen or fresh spinach

Sauté 1st 4 ingredients in sauce pan with butter or olive oil. When veggies start to brown add sausage (optional), stir every few minutes. Transfer above into a slow cooker (adding a liner makes clean up a breeze). Add rest of ingredients (depending on how large your slow cooker is you might want to add the kale first so the other ingredients weigh it down – it will eventually reduce though if you add last). Turn slow cooker on low and cook for 6 hours. You can serve with parmesan/asiago (or your favorite shredded cheese) on top.  **Some fans add a splash of hot sauce!
