Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup Recipe

This is definitely a case of a 'what do I have in the fridge' dinner. A couple of sausage links leftover, a few potatoes in the pantry, and a new CSA delivery with lots of greens! Soup it shall be!

Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup

2 tsp Olive Oil
1 Onion, Diced
1 Clove Garlic, crushed or minced
2-3 Carrots, sliced (Cut in half lengthwise if large)
2 Stalks Celery, sliced
2 Small Potatoes, Small Dice
2 Links Precooked Sausage, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Crushed Pepper (or more to taste)
One Can Diced Tomatoes with Juice
2 Cans Chicken Broth
1 Bunch Kale, Coarsely Chopped

Saute onions, carrots and celery in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add the sausage and brown for about 5 minutes, add garlic and cook for another minute. Add basil and crushed pepper. Stir in tomatoes and broth. Cover and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add kale, and cook uncovered, until the kale is tender, about 5-8 minutes more.
