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.

How To Make

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    Coarsely chop the onion and garlic, and add to sausage along with the fennel seed. Saute until onion is transparent.
  • 3
    Add chopped greens & toss until wilted.
  • 4
    Add white wine & soup stock plus more water if needed.
  • 5
    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.
  • 6
    Serve with crusty bread or a potato for a healthy balanced meal.
