It’s time to get our comfort on around here.
It’s currently midterms/final project madness/crunch-time in my world, which is all good fun, so imma keep this short and sweet.
Because of crazy school…ness, all I want to eat are piles of melted cheese, spaghetti sauce and bread and rice and caaaarrrbbbs. (currently snacking on a buttery english muffin…heaven and a half I swear)
So in rolls this stew. Magical, protein packed, delicious and healthy, it’s all the fuel, nutrients and satisfaction your body craves this time of year!
Plus, it makes a big pot so there’s lots of leftovers for those nights when your head just feels way too heavy to hold up.
Loads of kale and garlic with all dem good vitamins you need, white kidney beans and italian-sausage for protein, all thrown together with diced tomatoes to create heaven in a bowl.
Happy Wednesday! You’ve got this.
SPICY SAUSAGE AND KALE STEW~Serves 6-8
- 2 TB olive oil
- 1 large onion, diced
- 6 garlic cloves, finely diced

- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
- 1 big bunch of kale, stems removed and roughly chopped

Heat olive oil in large soup pot over medium heat, add sausage and cook until just browned, about 5 minutes, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon while cooking.
Add in onion and garlic and sauté until soft, 5-7 minutes.
Season with a pinch of both salt and pepper.
Add in beans, broth and tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in kale and cook for an additional 5 minutes, until it has wilted down into the soup.
Serve and enjoy!
