Salad made with organic cherry tomatoes, generous slices of pecorino, and mustard seed spicy green olives.  No dressing needed, just the marinade from the olives.  I adapted the soup from a non-vegetarian recipe, adding and subtracting a bit.  This could easily be made vegan by using soy rather than cream.  The potato will naturally make this nice and thick.

Vegetarian Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup

  • 1 pound vegetarian sausage (cook ahead of time until crispy on the outside)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 cube bouillon
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 2 cups kale, rinsed and julienned
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream or soy for vegan style

In a 4 quart saucepan over medium heat, saute the onions for 10 minutes, or until onions are almost clear. Add the garlic and saute for one more minute. Add the cbouillon, water and potatoes and bring to a simmer for 15 minutes. Add the kale, cream or soy and reserved sausage, simmer for 5 more minutes and serve.
