Soup follow-on

Webb asks for the recipe of the Sweet Potato Minestrone, yesterday's post. There's really nothing to it, and because it is quick, veggie-rich, and non-fattening I thought maybe some other people would like the recipe too. So here goes:

Sweet Potato Minestrone (serves 4 hearty eaters)

2 tbs olive oil
1 lb smoked turkey sausage, sliced
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced carrot
3/4 cup diced celery
4 cups good quality chicken broth
2 cups peeled, diced sweet potato
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
2 16 oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 16 oz can white beans, drained
8 cup coarsely chopped kale

How to make:
Combine the first 5 ingredients and saute for 7 minutes and sausage is a bit browned.
Add broth and the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the veggies are tender.

Not to be picky, but you will leave out the turkey sausage when I'm there, no? :)

Denise, naturally :-). I can even substitute veggie broth for the chickenbroth.

Webb, it should keep you going for a couple of days :-).
