As of lately, I’m obsessed with this super green! And I can’t get enough of it! I’ve been putting it in smoothies, tossing it with the likes of fresh squeezed lemon juice & agave, turning it into chips, and now this??!! When I decided to pair these leafy green ribbons of love with andouille chicken sausage.. Um, match made in heaven.. The end!

Now, you could use any sausage you like.. italian, chicken or otherwise, but the spiciness of chicken andouille (I buy “sausages by AMYLU” at Costco) gives this soup, just the right amount of heat & the perfect amount of flavor!

This will undoubtedly become a season staple in my house.. it freezes perfectly and it’s just another tasty way to get those antioxidants into your system! You can’t beat that.. as we get ready to combat flu season!

Trust me, you’re going to love this! ?
