This soup is truly a 15 minute meal, and barely needs a recipe but it really was quite comforting and delicious and there were enough leftovers for quality lunches the next day. These flavours also work well as a pasta. Kale is just so good in soups because it doesn’t fall apart like spinach, though I have also made a similar turkey sausage and white bean soup with spinach and it is also delicious.
