Sweet Potato, Kale and Turkey sausage soup

    This blog is about restoration projects and one of them is my health.
    I ‘m always on the lookout for a new project but taking care of our health should be ongoing.  I try to eat healthy 85% of the time BUT, I live in South Louisiana and we have great food here.  So I do treat myself to some delicious be it unhealthy treats from time to time.
    On a recent day trip to Breaux Bridge, my sister and I stopped to have lunch at Buck & Johnny’s.  I had a sweet potato and sausage soup that was out of this world.  I found myself craving it when I got home.  So this is my version of the soup.  Hope you enjoy!
    First I brown onions and kale in a stick of butter.  One whole onion and about 3/4 of a head of kale.  Make sure to remove the leaves from the stalk.

    At that time I am also boiling 4 sweet potatoes until they are soft.
    When the onions and kale are cooked down, I add a container of Vegetable broth.

     Peel the sweet potatoes and add to the pot.
    You can smash the potatoes with a potato masher or use an immersion blender.
    After mashing potatoes to make them creamy add boiled turkey sausage.
    I try not to use a lot of salt so I season with Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast and some garlic powder.  
    C’est si bon.  So good.
