Sausage, Kale, and Cauliflower Soup

It seems I'm on a soup kick right now so let me share another one of our favorites - sausage, kale, and cauliflower soup.

Sausage, Kale, and Cauliflower Soup

We often make a version of Zuppa Toscana, a sausage, kale, and potato soup. Since we love cauliflower so much we decided to try replacing the potatoes with cauliflower. To be honest, we love it and don’t miss the potatoes. We find this soup delicious and satisfying.

My sister and I can easily put this soup together on a weeknight. While one of us washes and preps the kale, the other chops the onion and garlic. And while the sausage is browning in the pot, one of us can prep the cauliflower.

We love this soup so much we were inspired to grow kale for the first time. We found that the Russian Red variety works just as well as the Lacinato and curly kales usually found in the grocery store.

If you don’t like the spice, feel free to replace the spicy Italian sausage with a milder version and omit the crushed red pepper flakes.
