Roasted vegetables, pureed and cooked with broth, kale, and a nice mix of Italian sausages make up this hearty soup. This soup brings out the rich flavors of kale and leaves out its typical bitterness. This soup is a winter staple in our family.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Brush a jelly roll pan with a thin coat of olive oil.
  2. Arrange carrots, tomatoes, onion, squash, potatoes, and garlic on the prepared pan. Drizzle remaining olive oil over the vegetables; season with salt and pepper. Turn the vegetables with a spoon to help coat evenly with the oil.
  3. Roast in preheated oven until browned and tender, turning occasionally, 20 to 30 minutes. Set vegetables aside.
  4. While the vegetables roast, place a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble sweet Italian sausage and hot Italian sausage into the skillet. Pour 1/4 cup vegetable broth over the sausage. Cook, breaking the sausage apart with a spoon as it cooks, until the sausage is cooked through and no longer pink, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer sausage to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  5. Cut squash and carrots into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside.
  6. Peel garlic cloves; place in a blender with roasted tomatoes and onion and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a large pot.
  7. Pour 1/2 cup broth onto the jelly roll pan. Scrape any browned bits from the surface of the pan with a wooden spoon or spatula; pour broth and browned bits into the pot with the blended tomato mixture.
  8. Pour remaining vegetable broth into the pot. Add kale, thyme, and bay leaf to the mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the kale is tender, about 30 minutes. Add sausage, carrots, potatoes, squash, garbanzo beans, and kidney beans to the soup; continue cooking until hot, about 10 minutes. Thin the soup with more vegetable broth as desired. Season with salt and black pepper. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaf to serve.
  9. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Good recipe. An earthier, more hearty take on minestrone. Next time I may go with a different type of sausage just to tweak it, but I will definitely keep in the recipe box.

I tried this recipe and loved it. I got kale in my veggie co-op and didn't know what it was. I also got butternut squash, and potatoes, so this recipe was perfect. I only had Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage, so I used it. It tastes great in there! I didn't have the right seasonings so I liberally applied Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper. I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, because it was all I had available. The mix of the beans, squash, meat, potato, broth and chickpeas is really good. And the kale... I like it! I never knew it until now. I will be adding this recipe to my list of things to make on a regular basis!! (Even if I don't get kale in my co-op box again!) NOTE: The picture does not do justice to this recipe! Mine is BEAUTIFUL with all the bright colors in it. I'll try to take a picture!)

I'm probably quite biased toward the chef, but this recipe is absolutely phenomenal!! Perfect flavor, and very healthy
