Kale + Tomato{ish} Soup

How To:
• Get your onions and coconut oil being all bffl-like in soup pot, you want to sweat them so a medium heat is good, this should take around 5 minutes to do.

• While that’s happening I decided to start tearing up my kale leaves { and separating them from the stem} and just put them into a big bowl until I was ready for them. When your Onions are done start to crumble in your sausage {take the casing off of them and break into pieces}.

• Then add in your peppers and let that cook for a few minutes. Toss your kale in.. and here’s the trick.. ready? Cover the pot, and let it steam for a few minutes to wilt the kale, then stir it all together.

• Add in your diced tomato + crushed tomato + Spices, stir together, add in chicken stock.

• Cover and let simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes. Right before you serve squeeze in 1/2 a lemons juice. Stir. When I put it in the bowl I finished it off with a smidge bit more pepper, another spritz of lemon juice and a drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil.
