Whole30/Paleo Portuguese Kale Soup

It’s 24 degrees today, so it’s the perfect day to bring out my red cast iron pot to make this soup! It’s my go-to pot, especially when making my weekly soup.

This week, I made a Whole30 friendly Portuguese soup. It’s a tomato based soup full of two different kinds of meat and veggies. While it sounds heavy, it’s actually quite light! If you’re not doing Whole30, dip a crusty bread into this. If you are, just make a bigger bowl of this soup and you’ll be completely satisfied!

  1. In a large stockpot, heat olive oil and add in leeks and onions. Saute until soft. Crush garlic into the pot and stir to slightly brown, 1-3 minutes.
  2. Add turkey meat and sausage, stirring until browned and adding a 1/2 cup of broth, if needed so as not to burn.When meat is cooked through, add in canned tomatoes, broth, salt and pepper. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.
