Kale and Sausage Stew - Recipe

Easy to make and loaded with robust flavor. If available, red potatoes add a colorful touch, but any potatoes will work. Since the sausage may be quite salty, don't add additional salt until cooking is completed.

Kale and Sausage Stew Recipe
  • Heat oil in large skillet or saucepan and cook sausage (medium heat) until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Spoon off all but about 1 tablespoon of fat and add onion and garlic. Cook until onion softens, about 5 minutes.
  • While onions cook, rinse kale, strip greens from center stems and chop coarsely.
  • Add water, wine, black pepper and cayenne pepper to the skillet; stir in.
  • Add potatoes and kale, stirring occasionally as the kale wilts. Cover and adjust heat to maintain a simmer.
  • Cook until potatoes and kale are tender, 15 - 20 minutes ( may take longer if potatoes are large or kale is old). Taste for seasoning; add salt if necessary.
  • Serve hot.
