Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup onion diced

  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • optional: chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrots and cook for 4-5 minutes or until just softened. Add the sausage and cook until lightly browned.
  • Add the chicken broth, thyme, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

Make a day ahead to allow the flavors to develop.
To make spicier add some red pepper flakes when browning the sausage.
Increase cooking time slightly if using chard or kale.
Garnish with fresh parsley for a hit of freshness.
