One thought on “Creamy Sweet Potato & Kale Soup with Sausage

  1. We love this soup. Easy to make and yummy! We have also made it using spolumbo’s spicy Italian sausage (which is gluten free) and if we don’t have kale on hand spinach works great too or a combo of both. If you use the spicy Italian sausage you may want to omit the red pepper flakes – depending on how spicy you like things.
