Creamy Sausage Kale Soup

  • Author: Kathleen
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


This Creamy Sausage Kale Soup is super flavorful, filling, and made on the stove in no time at all! Italian Sausage adds a slight kick that is offset by the creamy broth. Loads of texture from the potatoes, beans, and kale. This will be a new chilly day favorite!


  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 small white or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound ground Italian Sausage, mild or hot
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 5 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 15oz can cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 stalks kale, ribs removed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Cook Onion and Sausage – Grab a large soup pot and heat up the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion until it is starting to soften then add the sausage and cook/brown the sausage while crumbling. When the sausage is cooked and the onions are tender, add the garlic and cook for just a minute more.
  2. Add Flour and Spices – Add the flour, paprika, and red pepper flakes (if using) to the pot, stir and cook for a minute.
  3. Cook Potatoes – Add the broth to the pot – scrape any bits off of the bottom – and add the diced potatoes along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring the soup to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook until the potatoes are just fork tender (about 10 minutes, but will vary depending on how large your potatoes are).
  4. Add Kale and Beans – Add the chopped kale and white beans to the soup and cook for another 5 minutes or so until the kale is wilted.
  5. Finish Soup – Stir in the cream and lemon juice. Taste the soup and adjust salt and pepper, if needed. Serve and enjoy!
