Kale and Sausage Quinoa Soup

Cook Time:

30 minutes

Prep Times:

15 minutes


6 to 8 servings


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
11/2 cups chopped carrots
1 (8 ounce) package mushrooms
8 ounces Italian sausage or ground white turkey meat, broken into small chunks
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes in juice, drained
1 cup cooked quinoa
31/2 cups coarsely chopped kale
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, optional


1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots and mushrooms; saute, stirring frequently, until the vegetables begin to brown and soften slightly, 6 minutes.

2. Add the ground sausage and stir until the meat turns white and begins to color very slightly around the edges, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the Italian seasoning and stir, 1 minute. Add chicken broth, tomatoes and quinoa. Bring to a boil. Stir in the kale, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Serve and sprinkle each serving with parsley and Parmesan, if desired.
