kale soup

1 lb ground linguica or ground chourico (mild or spicy depending on your family's taste)
1/4- 1/2 rotisserie chicken (i use white and dark meat, whatever i have left on the chicken from a previous meal)
1 large bunch of fresh kale (rinsed well)
4 carrots (peeled & roughly chopped)
2 large potatoes (chopped)
1 large onion (chopped)
1 large can white beans or any beans you like (drained & rinsed)
1 large 49.5 oz can of organic chicken broth
1/2 cup short cut pasta (optional)
2 dried bay leaves
sea salt, pepper, garlic powder

heat a couple of tbsp of olive oil in a large stock pot; brown the linguica; add the large can of broth (if you needs more liquid, add more stock or water); add the bay leaves (discard before serving); add in the onions, carrots and potatoes; season with sea salt, pepper, garlic powder; bring to a simmer; roughly chop the kale and add it in (it will look like a lot, but it wilts down); after the kale is wilted, add the beans & the chicken; while simmering add in pasta; simmer until all the veggies are tender; serve with crusty bread!!
