The dust is starting to settle at our home after the Holidays! I love to plan, cook and decorate for the Christmas season, but its also good to get back to the normal routine and even regular cooking. My outdoor thermometer says 9 degrees this morning so that calls for soup, always a good warmer upper. Today I am sharing one of my favorites and best of all its fast and easy to put together!
Italian Sausage Soup:
1 pound Italian sausage, crumbled
1 medium onion, chopped
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
3 cups diced sweet potatoes or white potatoes ( I use sweet potatoes, you could use a combination of the two)
1 1/2 cups diced carrots
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
dash of pepper
4 cups beef broth
In large soup pot cook sausage with onion, drain well, stir in tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, lemon juice, spices and beef broth, simmer until carrots and potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Have a great week and Happy New Year!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
