Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat a large soup pan with oil spray. Add the sausages and cook for 5 minutes or so to brown, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove the sausages and set aside to cool. When they have cooled, slice the sausage in half lengthwise, then cut into semi-circles 1/2 inch thick. Set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil on medium in the soup pan, then add the onions. Sauté for 5 minutes, then add carrots and sauté a few more minutes.
  4. Stir in the potatoes, then the butternut squash and garlic. Cook for a minute or two, then add the chicken stock and water. Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce to simmer on medium for 15 minutes.
  5. After 15 minutes the veggies should be starting to get soft. Use a sturdy spoon to smash some of the potato and butternut against the side of the pot, to thicken the soup. Stir in the kale in a few batches, to allow some to cook down a bit to create more room. Add salt to taste and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
  6. Stir in the sausage and the kidney beans. Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes to let all the flavors meld. More cooking time is great, too, if you’ve got the time! When it’s cooked to your liking, serve with a crusty bread and glass of Portuguese wine to round things out.
