3/4 pound kale, large stems and ribs discarded, leaves coarsely chopped (8 cups)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
How to Make It
Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the garlic and onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 12 minutes. Add the ginger and andouille and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes and their juices; bring to a boil. Add the stock and kale; return to a boil.
Reduce the heat to moderate and simmer the soup until the kale is tender, about 10 minutes. Season the soup with salt and pepper and serve, or let cool and freeze.
The soup can be frozen for up to 1 month.
Andouille is a spicy smoked pork sausage that is traditionally added to Louisiana specialties like gumbo and jambalaya. Aidells' Cajun Style Andouille sausage is a great choice and is available in many supermarkets.
Review Body: This soup was delicious! The only thing I added were some red pepper flakes for a little extra spice. My fiance loved it as well. We are freezing leftovers to have for lunch. I’ll definitely be making this one again!
