Mustard Greens, Beans, and Potato Soup


    Mustard Greens, Beans, and Potato Soup

    This is a new take on classic Portuguese kale soup. The fiery mustard greens perk up the flavour and are tempered by mellow potatoes and beans.


    1 - 2 oz (56 g) spicy turkey sausage link
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 carrots, sliced
    1 celery stalk, chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
    1 large Yukon Gold potato, peeled and cubed
    4 cups (1 L) water or low-sodium chicken broth
    2 cups (500 mL) water
    1 - 14 oz (398 mL) can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
    1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano leaves
    1 tsp (5 mL) sweet smoked paprika
    1 large bunch mustard greens, washed and thinly sliced

    Slice sausage into rounds. Heat oil in large stockpot set over medium-high heat. Add sausage and fry until lightly browned on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to a plate.

    Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic, carrots, celery, and onion to pan. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 5 minutes.

    Add chicken broth, water, beans, oregano, and paprika. Cover and simmer until carrots and potatoes are very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

    Stir in greens and simmer just until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.

    For a thicker soup, remove and pur'ee one-quarter of the soup, then stir it back in pot. Stir in sausage.
