How to Make Italian Sausage & Greens Soup
- Saute 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.
- Coarsely chop the onion and garlic, and add to sausage along with the fennel seed. Saute until onion is transparent.
- Add chopped greens & toss until wilted.
- Add white wine & soup stock plus more water if needed.
- Simmer 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.
- Serve with crusty bread or a potato for a healthy balanced meal.
