Now that we have moved and (mostly) unpacked, I thought I would catch up on my spice club recipes. So every Friday I make one of the recipes using the spices that came with the recipe card. The first time I make the recipe I usually follow it exactly. Then after I have finished eating – I imagine what I would do differently if I cooked it again. Or it’s also fun to come up with different ways to use the leftover spices. We have created some fun new recipes this way. Yes, I like to sit around and think about food all of the time.
This week I made Sausage, Potato & Kale Soup and it was a very easy recipe. The recipe did call for ground pork but I had just had pork chops the night before so I substituted ground chicken. The spices were Summit County Seasoning and South Fork Italian Sausage Spice. I mixed the sausage spice into the ground chicken and refrigerated for 30 minutes. I cooked the chicken and then added chopped onions. I added diced potatoes and the other seasoning with chicken broth. I covered the pot and simmered until the potatoes were tender and then added the kale and cooked until it was tender.
This was a quick and easy recipe. If I had left out the chicken and used vegetable broth it would have been vegetarian and just as tasty. I will definitely make this recipe again.
If you like to cook and experiment with new recipes check out your local spice store to see if they have a spice club or you can visit our favorite spice store at Savory Spice Shop.
