If you know me you know I really love soup. You may also know I do most of my cooking while Roman is running around the kitchen. So it's always a plus when I can whip something up in 45 minutes or less!
With that being said, this soup really hit the mark! It was simple, flavorful, had texture and really filling! I was inspired by a recipe I saw on Kitchenista Diaries (who is a really dope chef btw).
With that being said, A Brotha in the Kitchen Presents: SOUPER (pun intended) Simple Kale & Kidney Bean Soup!
1lb bagged kale
1 pack of smoked sausage (sliced)
4 tbsp butter
1/2 chopped large yellow onion
3 oz tomato paste
2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp smoked sea salt
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp black pepper
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 can kidney beans (undrained)
Lets Get Cooking!
Heat a dutch oven over medium heat for about 5 minutes
add butter and sliced sausage
Cook for about 8 minutes (stirring a few times) until the sausage starts to get the nice brown crisp we all love
Next add your chopped onions, tomato paste and all your seasonings and let cook another 5 minutes
Add kale to the pot along with the chicken broth and water
Kick back, relax and let it simmer for 25 minutes to let the kale soften up
Finally, add your kidney beans for the last 5 minutes, stir in apple cider vinegar, remove from heat and serve!
Told ya it was SOUPER Simple!
