Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound raw spicy or sweet Italian chicken sausage
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 3 cups cauliflower florets about 12 oz.
  • 4 cups Zoup! Good Really Good™ Chicken Bone Broth
  • 5 cups lightly packed spinach leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste*

Instructions

  • Heat a large nonstick or cast-iron saucepan over medium-high heat. (If the saucepan is not nonstick, lightly coat with cooking spray.) Squeeze the sausage out of the casings into the skillet. Cook, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon, until cooked through and golden brown. Transfer the sausage to a bowl and set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium. Heat the olive oil in the saucepan, then add the onions. Cook until light golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the cauliflower and stir until combined.
  • Add the broth, bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until the cauliflower is very tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat. Stir in the spinach until wilted.
  • Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until very smooth. Alternatively, process the soup in a blender in two batches, pausing periodically to release the steam from the blender.
  • Stir in the ¾ of the cooked sausage.
  • Ladle the soup into four bowls, then garnish with the remaining sausage. Serve.
