We like to make homemade sausage out of wild game….be it venison or boar. Several varieties include, chorizo, mexican and of course some Italian flavors. If you do not have a recipe for this I will include that later on down the road. That is if you want to make some…..If not just a good link or loose meat italian sausage will work for this recipe, which is super easy.
- 1 pound italian sausage
- 1 bag parsnips, peeled and chopped in hunks
- 2 cans beef broth
- 2 cups water
- 1/3 bag of chopped kale or about 5 cups chopped
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 clove of garlic finely chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 can white kidney beans drained
Heat sauce pan large enough to hold all ingredients, tear sausage into large hunks, drop in and cook. Stirring carefully and not often….. do not break the meat up while browning. When brown deglaze the pan with sausage still in pan using small amounts of the beef broth. A wooden spoon works great for this….again keep pieces in tact. After all the crunchy goodies are scrapped off the bottom add remaining broth and water. Turn heat up a bit to start to boil….add parsnips, salt, garlic, and onion powder. Cook about 10-15 minutes or until parsnips start to get tender. Add kale and beans, cook another 15 minutes….that is it!
If you do not use meat products you can use vegetable broth, and a meatless sausage or no sausage at all. This is a hearty heathly soup packed with good stuff.
As always we hope you enjoy.
