Step 1: Gather Up the Ingredients and Tools

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of Italian sausage
  • 3 oz of ham
  • 1/2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes
  • 4 medium yellow potatoes
  • 1 medium white or yellow onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic minced, about 4 cloves
  • 4 cups chicken broth (or stock)
  • 1/2 bunch kale stems
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Tools

  • Large pot or Dutch oven
  • Ladle
  • Bowls
  • Potholders
  • Cutting board
  • Spoons
  • Can opener
  • Knife

Step 2: Prep the Ingredients

Prep the ingredients by cutting up the potatoes, defrosting the Italian sausage, and measuring out the spices. A time-saving tip is to buy the kale pre-chopped.

Step 3: Brown Up the Sausage and Ham

Add the 1 pound of Italian sausage into Large pot. After the sausage is browned, add ham.

This should take about 5 minutes with the burner on medium to high heat.

Step 4: Add the Onions and Garlic

Once the sausage is brown, and ham is cooked, add the onions and garlic. Let the onions and garlic sweat and wait until the onions are translucent.

This should take about 5 minutes with the burner on medium to high heat.

Step 5: Add the Spices

Add the pepper flakes, salt and pepper into the pot.

Step 6: Add the Chicken Stock and Potatoes

After the onions are translucent, add the chicken stock to the pot. Add the potatoes to the pot before the chicken stock starts to boil. Cook the potatoes until they are fork-tender, which is about 10-20 minutes with the burner on medium to high heat.

Step 7: Add the Coconut Milk and Kale

Turn the heat down and add the coconut milk. Make sure to mix the coconut milk up before adding it to the rest of the soup. Stir the soup together and then add the kale.

This should take about 10 minutes with the burner on medium to high heat.

Step 8: Relax and Let the Soup Cook

Put the lid on the large pot and let all the ingredients mix together for about 5-10 minutes with the burner on medium to high heat.

Step 9: Serve Up and Enjoy!
