Kale & Sausage Hash

Need a quick and easy meal that is filling and nutritious. Then a hash is what you want. Hash comes from the French term “haché” which means chopped. A hash is basically a mix of meat, potatoes, and any other chopped leftover veggies. In this version, we use organic pork sausage, sweet potatoes, apples and kale. Simple and quick to prepare. Pre-cook the sausages to save on time. 

Soup is a stable in our household. You can mix and match vegetables according to what you have in your refrigerator. Our Fall Harvest Soup is a great way to use up the wonderful variety of vegetables that are available at your local farmers’ market in the fall. Adding an apple to the soup gives it a natural sweet tanginess. This soup can be served as is or pureed.
