Ingredients

  • 1 lb spicy Italian sausage casings removed.
  • 1 large onion roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
  • 6 cups chicken broth or 6 cups of water with 1 organic bouillon cube
  • 1 large cauliflower head
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped frozen kale
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Garnish options (this part is entirely up to you)

  • Freshly grated Gran Padano
  • Crispy Bacon
  • A drizzle of cream
  • Black pepper

Instructions

  • Melt your butter over medium heat in a large pot and add your sausage. Break your sausage using a wooden spatula and cook it for 5-7 minutes. Once cooked, remove the sausage from the pot and set it aside.
  • In the now empty pot, add in your onions and them cook until they become a little translucent (3-4 minutes). Add your cauliflower, crushed garlic and chicken broth. Bring into a boil and cover. Let it cook for 20 minutes on medium heat or until completely cooked through. 
  • Using a heat proof immersion blender, blend your soup until it becomes completely smooth. If you are to do this in a regular blender, make sure you let your soup completely cook down before transferring to blender.
  • Put your blended mixture back into your pot and add your heavy cream, cooked sausage, frozen kale, salt and smoked paprika. Cook on medium heat for another 7-8 minutes (unless you had to cool your soup down completely, in which case it may take up to 20 minutes to warm back up).
  • Your soup is ready now. Taste and see if it needs salt and pepper, if not... You can serve it with your choice of garnish. My favourite is with a drizzle of cream and freshly ground black pepper. 
  • Enjoy!
