This is an quick and healthy meal for a weeknight. Any good sausage will work, but Italian is best. Serve it over polenta or rice.

Sausage with Kale and Potatoes

  • 2 Italian sausage sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 2 potatoes diced medium
  • 1 onion diced medium
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups kale torn into small pieces
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • Salt/pepper

Parboil potatoes in salted water for 2 minutes then drain and set aside. In a large saute pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium low heat. Add onion and saute until golden brown. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Turn heat to medium, add sausage and brown. Add potatoes and rosemary and turmeric and stir well. Add wine and deglaze pan. Add stock and kale and season with salt and pepper. Simmer until kale is soft and potatoes are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve hot drizzled with pan juices.

    Oh wow this looks simply wonderful!

    I don’t know that the polenta is necessary. The kale, sausage and potatoes are plenty filling on their own.

  7. Flavours I love! I wonder if using chorizo might be a nice twist?
