Serves: 8

Prep Time: You tell me…

 

SHIT YOU’LL NEED:

1 yellow onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp butter

14 oz meatless “veggie” sausage “crumbles” (looks side to side…)

7 cups veggie broth

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp garlic salt

¼ tsp dried sage

¾ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

6 russet potatoes, cut into ½ inch cubes

1 cup 2% milk

3 large leaves curly kale, chopped

 

HOW TO DO THE SHIT:

1.    Heat the butter in a large soup pot over medium-high heat.

2.    Add the garlic & onion; cook until softened (approx. 4 minutes).

3.    Add your faux sausage & cook for another 5-10 minutes, until the meatless meat starts to brown. It really just needs to be heated, because hello, it’s not real meat ;)

4.    To the pot, add the veggie broth, salt, garlic salt, dried sage, crushed red pepper flakes, & potatoes.

5.    Boil until the potatoes are fork tender (approx. 15 minutes).

6.    Using a slotted spoon, remove 1 cup of the potatoes & add to high-speed blender. Don’t worry if you get a little faux meat or any other goodness thrown in there.

7.    Add your 1 cup of 2% milk to the blender along with the potatoes & blend until smooth & creamy. Add back to the soup & stir to combine.

8.    Add the chopped kale& let wilt for 2 minutes. SERVE!!! Meatless Zuppa Toscana!
