Cooking Instructions

Put cup (60 ml) of the olive oil in a large soup pot and saute the onion, garlic, turnip, and cauliflower over medium heat.

While that's cooking, chop the kale into bite-sized pieces and add it to the pot as well.

(You may need to cram it in at first, but don't worry?it cooks down quite a bit.

) Let the vegetables saute for another 10 minutes or so, stirring to turn the whole thing over every once in a while.

Slice the smoked sausage lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into -inch (1.

3-cm) pieces.

Heat the remaining oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat and brown the smoked sausage a little.

Add the browned sausage, tomatoes, and 7 cups (1.

8 L) of the chicken broth to the pot.

Use the last cup (120 ml) of broth to rinse the tasty browned bits out of the frying pan and add that too.

Bring to a simmer and cook until the vegetables are soft (30 to 45 minutes).

Stir in the hot pepper sauce, add salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
