Sausage-Greens Soup

I love a good soup! This one was made from a bunch of leftovers my refrigerator! And as usual, it turned to be VERY good! Don't know what it is about leftovers that turns them into the BEST soups. I put this together with: cooked cabbage leftover from a keilbasa/caraway cabbage dish two days ago, a bit of leftover cooked kale and bacon, and one small piece of smoked sausage……it was delicious served with some of my new Rosemary Onion Almond Thins. The cracker recipe is on my site, too! This soup is Induction friendly.


INGREDIENTS:

1 lb. pork bulk sausage
2 slices bacon, chopped
4 oz. smoked sausage, sliced or chopped to preference
1˝ c. green cabbage, cut-up coarsely
1 ˝ c. kale, cut up coarsely (or about ˝ c. cooked kale)
1 oz. onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 oz. poblano pepper, chopped (or jalapeno) [optional]
1 can (14.5 oz) crushed or diced tomatoes (no salt added)
1 c. pork or beef stock
2-3 c. water
Dash each black and cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS: Brown crumbled sausage in bottom of a pressure cooker (or large stew pot). Add chopped bacon and smoked sausage. Toss in onion, garlic and poblano. Saute until sausage is no longer pink and veggies are half done. Add tomatoes, stock, water and seasonings. Close pressure cooker and bring to steam, lower heat and cook 8-10 minutes. If using conventional stew pot, you will need to simmer until all meat and veggies are tender, or about 30 minutes.

Oh I love soups! I wish I had seen this before I started dinner.
I have almost everything on hand, so I might try this tomorrow. I don't have any canned tomatoes though. What about fresh tomatoes?

Sure Tulips, I'd say four Romas or a couple large round tomatoes would do nicely.

This looks great. I like making soup from leftovers and you're right--it always turns out great.

Love the pic and I'm heading over to your sight to get the cracker recipe.
Thank you for sharing all the good stuff you make.
