Simply In Season calls this “Weed Soup” in the recipe notes. It’s a great way to use up CSA leftovers!
FOR PRINTABLE VERSION CLICK HERE: Sausage and Greens Soup
8 ounces bulk sausage
1 cup green onion (or onion or chives. I used chives since I had some I needed to use up)
4 cups broth (turkey, chicken, or veg)
1 cup potatoes (diced)
1 dash salt and pepper (each)
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk (I substituted raw milk since that’s what I had)
3 cups greens (spinach, kale, dandelion, or other) (I used 1 C of frisee and 2 C of kale)
1. Brown sausage in soup pot and drain most of the fat. Remove meat.
2. Saute’ the green onions in the reserved fat until soft. Return sausage to the soup pot.
3. Add broth, potatoes, and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft, 10-15 minutes.
4. Add remaining ingredients and cook until tender. Garnish each bowl with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
The Verdict: This soup was surprisingly yummy. I think the chicken broth and sausage and chives gave it a lot of flavor. The greens were just there for texture. Will definitely make this again! And, DH liked it too. I can tell because there were no leftovers.
