Recipe: Creamy Sausage and Kale Soup

recipe: Soups and Stews

This creamy sausage and kale soup is dairy free, gluten free and paleo. Loaded with kale, carrots and chunks of spicy sausage, it is a hearty meal in a bowl. This creamy broth is made with coconut milk but does not have a coconut flavor at all, just a rich creamy broth packed with nutrition and flavor.
