Kale & Spicy Sausage Saute

Posted Oct 03 2012 9:53am

I’ll admit, I didn’t have high hopes for this recipe. I originally bought the ingredients to make a soup, but I just didn’t feel like another tomato-based soup since I had already been eating Creamy Chicken Tomato soup all week.

I decided to take the ingredients and make a saute instead, and I’m glad I did! This recipe turned out much more awesome than anticipated.

You’ll need (makes 4-6 servings):

  • ~1-2 pounds pre-cooked spicy (or non-spicy, if you don’t like spice) sausage. I used turkey kielbasa from Trader Joe’s.
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 14-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 4-5 pieces bacon
  • salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste

Make it:

  • Place bacon in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Cook until desired crispiness is achieved!
  • Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, but leave the remaining grease.
  • Add onion and saute for a few minutes, then add kale.
  • Once the kale cooks down, add sausage and tomato.
  • Crumble bacon and add it to the pan.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper (for added spice!) to taste.

For whatever reason, this flavor combination was totally great: smoky, spicy, fire-roasted — a lovely and warm fall dish.
