Introduction

About this Recipe

This is one of my favorite prep-ahead, grab and go meals. Let me tell you why.

 

So, on a day I’m having sausage and kale soup, I get out my Crock Pot individual-size food warmer. Into it’s stainless steel cup I throw my chopped up sausage patty, the frozen kale, the bouillon cubes, and either 1 tbsp of coconut oil, butter, or heavy whipping cream. I SO NOT ADD THE WATER. I pop on the lid, and I go.

 

Now, whenever I get where I’m going (the office, etc), I get 2 cups of water, and plug the bad boy in. In an hour, I have a hot bowl of soup.

 

It’s awesome.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 oz ground pork sausage, cooked (2oz is pre-cooking weight)
  • 1/2 cup chopped, frozen kale
  • 2 bouillon cubes + 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Notes:

  • 2oz is pre-cooking weight
  • Pick a ground sausage you like. (I prefer hot sausage.)
  • Fresh spinach is also good.
  • You can use 2 cups of broth as an alternative to the bouillon and water.
  • If you don’t care for sausage, you can use any ground meat of your choice. =) I’m easy that way.
