Recipe

This simple Sausage, Pepper, and Spinach soup is low carb, paleo, and Whole30 friendly but more importantly - it's full of flavor and incredibly comforting.

I am gearing up for a trip back East for the holidays and just the thought of all that cold weather has me craving soup. Literally, I stare at all the snow covered faces and trees on social media and immediately want something warm. I think my body is unconsciously trying to prepare to face the snow and mind-numbingly cold mornings. You know the kind I mean. When you walk outside, can see your breath, and your teeth immediately start to chatter as you scrape ice and sleet off the car. Just to get in and freeze while the car blows cold air out of the heating vents. So in anticipation, we are eating all the soup.

So let's talk about this Sausage, Pepper, and Spinach Soup. It's packed with sausage, peppers, tomatoes, spinach, and plenty of garlic. The key to making this soup really delicious is starting with a really good sausage. Choose either a sweet or hot variety depending on what you like and you can use chicken, turkey, or pork. It can be ground sausage or links - just make sure it is full of flavor. Then you just add some onion, carrots, celery, bell pepper, and spinach and you have one flavor packed soup. And if you want to beef things up, you vcould always add beans, rice, or pasta.
