The temperatures have been cooling up slightly here in Boulder and by slightly I mean dipping into the late forties in the evenings while the sun is still out. It’s this incredible combination of the nice soft summer sun with the cooler touch of fall. To celebrate this incredible time of passage I’ve created this delicious, paleo soup that is filled with tons of flavor with minimal ingredients. I use good quality bone broth as a base, browned spicy Italian sausage, chunks of Japanese sweet potato and bitter kale to make this give you a good sweat soup.

Growing up Sunday meant soup to me, every single Sunday my mom would make a huge pot of soup and there would be rice and avocado and basically family in a memory for me. Now that I am living closer to my mom, an hour versus seven I can get together with her and make a big batch of soup. This time though, I make this spicy sausage sweet potato and kale soup, I like using very spicy sausage from my friends at Mulay’s, not only is it paleo but they are also local which I LOVE. Their killer hot sausage is amazing, and full of flavor, I like to get it in their pre-cooked packaging, brown some up and save the rest for later. The Japanese sweet potato holds their shape and lends this sweetness to the dish the compliments well with the spicy sausage.

Trust me, babes, one spoonful will have you coming back for more.

In a large dutch oven, add the crumbled Italian sausage and brown on medium heat until it is crispy, remove from pan leaving just the leftover fat. Add the potatoes, and cook until lightly brown and then add the kale. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients and cooking for 20 minutes before adding back the sausage and cooking for an additional 5-10 minutes, check the potatoes. Check for seasoning, and enjoy.

Hi! I'm Andrea. A girl who loves her chocolate as much as her greens.

  1. This soup looks so good. I’m going to be pinning this for later, we love recipes like this for when we’re stuck inside snowed in 🙂

  2. Oh, how I love that weather as summer comes to an end and fall begins. It is definitely the perfect combination weather wise! This paleo soup sounds mouth watering DELICIOUS!! My family would LOVE it! Speaking of perfect combination, you have sweet with salty plus bitter kale – ah, love love! Beautiful photos too!

    1. YESS. Isn’t such an incredible time! I love how the transition from summer to fall is. Hope you and your family give it a try!

  3. Wow, this is so delicious! I do love spicy food a lot most especially in a rainy days. I will definitely make this and will share this to everyone.

    1. This is perfect for the fall and winter months, so looking forward to enjoying this soup during the colder months. Hope you give it a try Jessica!

    1. YESSS. So looking forward to enjoying this soup on the colder months. We are starting to get chiller evenings here in Colorado. 🙂

  4. I can’t believe all of this is made in one pot. It’s a little hot for me to want soup right now but in the winter, I have so much! I like kale a lot and am always looking for more ideas instead of just “salads”.

    1. Hollie, this would be perfect for the winter. I am actually really looking forward to winter for soup season. Hope you give it a try 🙂
