Recipe

I couldn't be more excited to being adding soups and stews back to the weekly lunch and dinner rotation.  After a long and hot few months, I am looking forward to bundling up inside with a hearty soup.  Although I normally make this soup with chickpeas, I had a few friends coming over who try to eat Paleo and low carb so I opted for a version with just turkey sausage, kale, and butternut squash.  If you are realy cutting back on carbs you could use cauliflower, broccoli, or pumpkin.  Also as you would expect, this freezes great so don't be afriad to double up the recipe and keep it stored away for quick meals in the future.
