Paleo Cream of Sweet Potato , Sausage and Vegetable Soup

Paleo Cream of Sweet Potato, Sausage and Vegetable Soup

In the mood for a sweet and savory pot of delish?? This soup is definitely packed with lots of flavor and vegetables.. It is kind of similar in some ways ¬†to Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana, but this is a paleo version with a few twists. So go ahead and let yourself indulge a little !! ūüôā

 

Ingredients:

One pound  Italian sausage (I use organic chicken sausage)
3 large sweet potatoes or turnips (peel and dice into small cube sized pieces)
2 cups chopped fresh kale
1-2 cups chopped steamed asparagus pieces
1 large red onion chopped
1/2  cup diced  bell pepper
2 stalks diced celery

2 ¬†boxes -32 ounces each organic chicken stock (I get mine from Aldi’s or I make my own)
2 cups water
1  can full fat organic coconut milk (use organic milk if not dairy sensitive)
1 cup cooked,chopped organic nitrate free bacon (optional)
3 T. bacon fat (optional)
1 teaspoon  organic red pepper flakes (optional)
3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon organic garlic powder or granules
1 teaspoon organic onion powder
1 pinch organic ¬†raw sugar or a few drops of liquid stevia ( this¬†will make all the flavors pop ūüôā )
1 -2  Tablespoons arrowroot starch or GMO free cornstarch  (to thicken if needed)
1 Tablespoon Organic Better Than Bouillon ( Chicken )
REAL Salt and organic black pepper to taste

Instructions:
Put the water and  chicken stock into a big soup pot and start to bring to a gentle boil. Lightly steam asparagus and set aside till ready to add.
Cook sausage  with onion, pepper and celery , save drippings (for extra flavor) and set aside.
Add cubed potato or turnips to  boiling broth . When potatoes are close to being done (fork tender) then add chopped kale . Cook for another 15 or so minutes.
Next add sausage with onion and celery to soup along with bacon and fat if using and all seasonings (including optional red pepper flakes).
Next add steamed asparagus ¬†and the coconut milk and pinch of sugar or stevia. Stir¬†in and mix all ingredients very well,continue to warm thru and add salt and pepper to flavor to your taste and it is finished!!! Enjoy ūüôā ¬†Serves 8-12.

Note: If you need to thicken soup up a bit you can put 1-2 tablespoons arrowroot or cornstarch to a cold cup of water and mix well so there are no lumps and add into hot soup . If you just add in the arrowroot powder to the hot soup it will clump up ,thats why it is best to mix in cold water first.
