This Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup is absolutely delicious and the perfect soup to warm up and winter night. Plus it’s extremely easy and Whole30 approved!
The October Whole30 was a little bit difficult. I’m not going to lie. I kept trying to come up with recipes but would either make them up and totally forget to write them down, or to be perfectly honest they weren’t great. Usually when I Whole30, I rely on other recipes because it’s just easier when you’re eating so specifically. This time though, I really wanted to push myself to step out of my bubble and create!
I created this from scratch and I totally love it. Really, really love it. It’s like a lightened up version of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana. There are a lot of recipes out there that include coconut milk, but I just don’t love those because of the coconut undertone.
This Sausage and Potato soup is a coconut-free, light and completely delicious. This isn’t a second’s type soup, it’s a third’s type soup. I’m almost making it weekly, and it’s Whole30 so there is no guilt in eating it!
