Green Soup with Chicken and Sausage

Just using up some leftover ingredients and making the husband happy with the stick blender. :)

Green Soup with Chicken and Sausage

2 T lard from pastured pigs
1 small organic onion
3 cloves of organic garlic
1 cup chopped squash (like zucchini)
3 cups chopped kale

Heat lard in a soup pot and add the following ingredients. Add a couple tablespoons of sea salt. Cook on medium for about 10 minutes.

Add:
4 cups cooked broccoli
4 cups homemade chicken stock
Enough water to cover everything

Bring to a low boil and simmer for a few minutes. I added:
2 shakes cayenne pepper
4 shakes each dried oregano and thyme

Blend well with a stick blender. Then add your meat.
3 chopped sausages (I used Trader Joe's Spicy Vino and Formaggio style)
2 cups chopped leftover chicken

Heat til everything is nice and hot. That's all!

Josh is doing Atkins so that's how he ate his. We ate OURS with a nice blurb of cream.

Yum :)
