Italian Sausage & Greens Soup
Janice Joy Miller
I always feel so good when I get in a cup or so of vitamin packed greens of some sort. This soup is a great balance of protein and healthy greens. Add a baked sweet potato or some multi grain bread for a balanced meal.
- 1 Tbsp
- olive oil
- 1 lb
- italian seasoned sausage (can be vegetarian sausage)

- 4 c
- soup stock (chicken, turkey, or vegetable)
- 1 pinch

1Saute sausage (cut into bite size chunks) in olive oil. This recipe attempts to go low fat, but feel free to add more olive oil or cooking spray if needed.
2Coarsely chop the onion and garlic, and add to sausage along with the fennel seed. Saute until onion is transparent.
3Add chopped greens & toss until wilted.
4Add white wine & soup stock plus more water if needed.
5Simmer on low heat another 20 minutes or so. Add a pinch of sugar if desired, but not more than a teaspoon or it can get too sweet.
6Serve with crusty bread or a potato for a healthy balanced meal.
