Rustic Potato Soup   6 comments


Rustic Potato Soup Serves 4 to 6

Let the potatoes simmer in the broth while you prep and cook the remaining ingredients. Because the kielbasa is quite salty, no added salt is necessary.

6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 pounds red potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound kielbasa sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 large leeks, white and light green parts only, cut in half lengthwise, then sliced thin crosswise
1/2 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves cut crosswise into 1/4-inch strips (about 4 packed cups)
Ground black pepper

1. Bring broth, potatoes, and bay leaf to boil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Using potato masher, coarsely break up potatoes, leaving some large chunks.
2. Meanwhile, melt butter in Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook kielbasa, stirring frequently, until lightly browned in spots, about 4 minutes. Add leeks and cook until soft, about 4 minutes.
3. Add potato mixture and kale to Dutch oven and simmer until kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with pepper and serve.

  1. Thanks for the soup recipe. Stop over for my chicken velvet soup.

  2. I am going to have to try this recipe when I have guests so I can “show off” and say there are leeks and kale in this soup! Trust me, my friends would be impressed! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yummy! I’ll be by at 11:30 for a bowl!

  4. I’ve never had kale, but this sounds luscious.

  5. Sounds delicious! I’ll have to try it–as soon as the weather cools down some!

  6. That sounds so good – and I can’t wait to tell Veronica at Toddled Dredge about it b/c she loves her some leeks. 🙂 Thanks for posting this!
