Shawna's New Fall Obsession

It's that time of year again! When we crave anything warm and savory. Like apple cider, coffee, fresh baked goods, and warm soups and stews.
This Hearty Fall soup is both guilt free and delicious! Full of fresh veggies and filled with protein this soup is the perfect "easy prep" meal for any fall night. Shawna, a devotee to the paleo diet cooks this soup frequently and we can't blame her! You will too once you've tried it!

What you'll need: (pictured above)
- 3 small Sweet Potatoes
- Coconut cream (3/4 cup)
-1 bunch fresh Kale
- 3 cloves of minced Garlic
- Chicken Broth (2 cups)
- Beef Broth (2 cups)
- 1 pound ground Italian sausage
-Coconut oil (table spoon)
- 2 teaspoons each: dried oregano, dried basil, pepper, thyme.
- 2 bay leaves
- A large soup pot
- Soup spoon
- potato peeler
-measuring cups

1.)Melt the coconut oil in large soup pot.
2.) Brown the Italian sausage after the oil is heated
3.) While sausage is cooking, cut your sweet potatoes (after peeling) into even sized chunks. (as pictured above) 
4.) After the sausage is brown, add sweet potatoes and garlic cloves. Stir to combine.
5.) Next, add all other spices. Bay leaves, basil, pepper, oregano and thyme.
6.) Next, add 3/4 cup coconut cream and the chicken and beef broths. Stir to combine.
7.) Add the whole bag of Kale. Shawnna prefers the ready-cut bag from trader joes.
8.) Stir kale into soup. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30 min.
Lastly, warm up with your healthy and hearty fall creation!
