Sausage, White Bean and Kale Soup

As this never ending miserable winter soldiers on, I’ve been making big pots of soup to get me thru the weekdays. After last week’s soup, I decided to try another one with White Beans and Kale and managed to stumble upon this recipe.

I ended up rewriting the recipe as I was cooking it. First, I used hot Italian sausage instead of sweet. Then, I decided to grill the sausage. I sauteed the vegetables in duck fat and then pureed them once they were cooked – just like last week’s soup. I then sauteed the kale in duck fat and added them – also like last week. But when I went to grill the sausage, that’s when I found out that the butcher had given me bulk sausage and not links… So, I had to brown that in a pan and add it in at the end.
