- 1 cup diced green bell pepper
- 1 cup diced celery
- 2 cups diced green cabbage
- 4 cups diced cooked potatoes
- 4 cups chopped kale
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup heavy cream
Add sausage, onion, peppers, celery, cabbage, potatoes, and kale to a 4-quart soup kettle. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
Add broth, garlic, salt, and pepper and simmer until cabbage and kale are wilted. Finish with heavy cream and serve.
