  • Swiss Chard & Andouille Sausage Soup

    Right now Iíve got a mess of greens growing like weeds in my garden. When I start to get overwhelmed with them, this soup is a great way to use them up. This is basically a primal variation of the Italian bean and swiss chard soup, although to be honest, I donít really miss the beans. All the flavor comes from the veggies, broth and sausage anyhow. I typically use swiss chard and spinach, but it works great with all sorts of greens such as arugula, mustard greens and escarole. You can use whatever you have available.

    Ingredients
    ■8-10 Swiss Chard Leaves
    ■1 lb. andouille sausage removed from casing
    ■Half an onion chopped
    ■2 cloves of garlic minced
    ■1 tbs. olive oil
    ■Spinach (or whatever combination of greens you would like)
    ■4 cups organic chicken broth
    ■1 cup of dry white wine or cooking sherry
    ■Salt and pepper to taste

    Instructions
    ■Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat
    ■Sautee the onion and garlic until cooked
    ■Add sausage and cook until no longer pink
    ■Add chicken broth and wine
    ■Bring to a boil and add greens
    ■Turn down heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes to 1 hour to fully cook greens and combine flavors
    ■Serve ďnakedĒ or with a little shaved parmesean cheese

          Thread bump:

          I'm doing this right now. I'm substituting purple kale for spinach, and adding portabella mushrooms. I'm also skipping the broth, and making it more like a stew.
