With cloudy skies and cool temperatures, for today’s Tasty Tuesday, I thought this is a perfect day for soup! So, today, I am featuring a soup from the past that is perfect comfort food for a cold day! It is an easy to prepare soup that uses sausage, artichokes, mushrooms and chard! Ready to head into the kitchen?
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1# hot Italian pork sausage, bulk
1 49 oz. can of chicken broth
2 cups of water
2 packages of frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
1 bunch of Swiss chard
3/4# crimini mushrooms, washed and sliced
Asiago cheese, grated
Let’s begin by adding the olive oil to your soup pot, and turn up the heat to medium high. When hot, add in the pork sausage.
As the sausage cooks, use a spoon to crumble it to small pieces. While this is browning, let’s get our chard ready. Wash the chard and then remove the center portion of the stem as shown in the photo below.Next, cut up the chard into good size pieces. Set aside when done.
By the time this is done, your sausage should be nicely browned. Drain off half the fat from the pot.
Next, add in your broth to the soup pot, along with the water, artichokes and mushrooms and bring this to a boil.
Once it boils, turn the heat down to medium low and then add your chard.
Cover and cook for about 5 more minutes so that the chard gets cooked. Then dish it up into soup bowls and top it with a bit of Asiago cheese.
Doesn’t that look yummy? 🙂
Well, thank you for joining me in the kitchen today! I hope that you have one heck of an amazing Tuesday! Be well! ^..^
