    My family loves the potato and sausage soup at Olive Garden. So I made up this soup to try & replace the Olive Garden one with healthier food options. It's really chunky & filling and very tasty served with some fresh chopped italian parsley & fresh grated parmesean on top, if desired.


    • 6 Spinach & feta chicken sausages, sliced into 1/2 pieces
    • 2 large sweet onions, peeled, cut in half & sliced
    • 2 large sweet potatos, peeled & cubed
    • 1 bunch kale, washed, stems removed & rough chopped
    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • 64 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
    • 1/3 cup dry sherry
    • 1 large lemon, zested
    • 1 orange, zested
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 2 tsp. dry basil
    • 2 tsp. dry oregano
    • Pinch chili flakes, if desired
    • 1/2 pint cream
    • salt & pepper, to taste


    1. Add olive oil to pan & heat over medium high heat.
    2. Add onion slices. Cook onion until begin to turn golden.
    3. Add garlic and continue to cook until onions are carmelized & garlic is soft.
    4. Add sherry & deglaze pan. Allow sherry to almost fully evaporate.
    5. Add all remaing ingredients except cream & kale. Bring to simmer & allow to simmer until potatos are tender.
    6. Remove soup from heat, add kale, cream & serve.
    7. Enjoy!
    8. Note: Sausage can be browned before placing into soup if you prefer the testure of the sausage that way.
    9. If kale is not available chard can be used. If using chard allow chard to cook for a few minutes, it does not wilt as easily as the kale does.

      Hi Bud:
      This looks tasty. A good combination of ingredients. With cooler weather coming it is a good choice for an evening meal. Add a salad and some crusty bread for the juices and youj're good to go. I have added it to my Try Soon folder. Thanks for sharing.
