Sausage, Potato and Spinach Soup

A hearty, comforting soup that’s so easy and simple to make, loaded with tons of fiber and flavor!  A delicious recipe as is, however next time we might try to either drain the sausage after cooking or use spicy turkey sausage. We also added some baby bella mushrooms.


1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, optional
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
5 cups chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1 lb red potatoes, diced
3 cups baby spinach, rough chopped
1/4 cup heavy cream


Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat.

Stir in garlic, onion, mushrooms, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir in chicken broth and bay leaf, and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and mushrooms; cook until tender, about 10 minutes.

Stir in spinach until it begins to wilt, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream until heated through, about 1 minute; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Serve immediately.
