Week 13: Jen &Derek’s CSA – Fall Soup with Sausage and Greens

Fall is  in the air around here and that means soup in our house.  I love sitting with a bowl of warm soup on a cool night.  This soup was a winner, sausage, fresh carrots, tomatoes and a selection of greens (swiss chard and kale) are a match made in heaven.

Fall Soup with Sausage and Fresh Greens

2 sausages, casing removed
1 shallot, leek or onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
4 carrots, diced
4 cups of freshly chopped greens of your choice (swiss chard, kale, or collard greens)
2 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes or canned tomato puree
2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups of water
lots of freshly ground pepper

Begin by heating a large pot over medium heat.  Toss in the sausage and break it apart into small pieces as it cooks.  Add in the shallot and garlic andfor a minute or two until softened.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer over low heat for at least 30 minutes.  Enjoy with a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan cheese.
