  • 1 lb turkey sausage regular or spicy
  • 15 oz Cannellini white beans 1 can, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced, about 1.5 cups
  • 3 cloves garlic minced, about 1 tbsp
  • 4 cups broth 32 oz (chicken, vegetable, beef, etc)
  • 2.5 cups kale stems removed
  • 4.5 cups petite yellow potatoes diced, about 24 oz
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne


  • Gather all ingredients.
  • Mince the garlic, dice the onions, and chop the potatoes into quarters.
  • Place a large dutch oven on a burner on the stovetop. Turn on medium heat and let the dutch oven heat up.
  • Spray the dutch oven with cooking grease.
  • Add the turkey sausage to the dutch oven. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break up the turkey as it cooks. Cook for about 5 minutes or until there's no pink and it's cooked through.
  • After the meat is finished cooking, scoop the meat out of the dutch oven. Place in a bowl on the side until needed. **When scooping out the meat, leave the excess liquid in the dutch oven! Don't drain. You'll use this for the next steps**
  • Add the minced garlic and chopped onion to the dutch oven. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, and cayenne. Use a spoon to stir frequently.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables start to get soft.
  • Add the broth and chopped potatoes to the dutch oven. Cook 10-15 minutes.
  • While potatoes cook, prepare the kale. Peel off the stems and set aside.
  • Add the kale, white beans (drained & rinsed) and meat into the dutch oven. Cook for about 10 mins.
  • Scoop the soup into bowls. Top with parmesan cheese and serve with toasted bread.
  • Enjoy!
