Sausage Spinach Soup

User Rating 5 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


This sausage soup is made with Italian sausage or chorizo, spinach, onions, and potatoes.


  • 3 to 4 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2 pounds) 2 medium onions, thinly sliced 6 cups chicken broth 1/4 teaspoon pepper 12 ounces spicy sausage, such as chorizo or Italian sausage boiling water 1 tablespoon butter 1 pound fresh spinach, cleaned and chopped


In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, combine potatoes, onion, chicken broth, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile place sausages in a skillet in about 1/2 inch of boiling water. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain and remove sausage casings. Thinly slice sausage or crumble; set aside.

Blend or process cooked potato mixture, a little at a time, until smooth. Return to the stock pot and add butter and chopped spinach. Cook, uncovered, over low heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, until spinach is wilted. Stir in sliced or crumbled sausages; serve immediately. Serves 6.

Loved the soup. I tweaked the recipe a bit by adding shallots and garlic to the potato mixture. As for spices I also added 1/2 tsp tumeric and 1/2 cumin, neither of which were overpowering. The tumeric does make the soup a glossy yellow. Three of the four kids and husband ate it all up. Fussy teenager even ate some.
