I love to cook a pot of food, and soup is a great place for a variety of colorful vegetables. This hearty, veggie-filled soup with Italian sausage is a nice change from the norm and I make it whenever the weather is cold enough.
Purpose of this year: Freeze my garden zucchini (which is always too much) to make this soup local and organic (for cheap!) All year long.
The hearty Italian sausage soup is full of vegetables
The food that can be cooked and served in one dish is my absolute favorite type of dish. Soup is usually such a meal. (Dance cheerfully for low dishes!) The key to eating a single dish is packing in lots of veggies and a good amount of protein.
For the vegetables in this soup I use zucchini and yellow squash from the garden, because I always have more of them because I know what to do! I also include carrots and Italian stewed tomatoes. Finally, I finally toss in some fresh spinach. If this collection does not appeal to you, you will change some of them, but my staff loves it.
If I’m feeling ambitious and don’t mind a few more dishes because I didn’t mess up a lot of people at dinner, my coconut flour biscuits are really good with this soup.
Recipe of hearty Italian sausage soup
Colorful soup with one of our favorites, Italian sausage and bone broth.
In a large pot, brown the sausage until it is almost cooked.
While mincing the garlic, slice the carrots, and dice the zucchini and yellow squash.
Add the minced garlic to the sauce and cook for another minute.
Stir in broth, tomatoes, and carrots.
Boil 15 minutes.
Add the zucchini, yellow squash, pepper, and onion salt and simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
Turn off the burner and put the spinach on.
Stir to combine and wait 5 minutes for spinach to die.
Serve and enjoy!
If your family loves a little heat, try spicy Italian sausage! Also, you can make vegetables differently based on personal preference.
