  • 1/2 lb ground pork sausage
  • 4 oz bacon chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 3 cups kale chopped, hard stems removed
  • 15 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Parmesan cheese shredded for serving


  • Brown the sausage in a large soup pot over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat into small pieces as it cooks. When done, transfer sausage to a plate.
  • Cook the bacon in the same pot over medium heat until crispy. Drain, leaving about 1 tsp of the drippings in the pot. Add the cooked bacon to the plate with the sausage.
  • Sauté onions in the pot and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  • Increase heat to high, pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add back in the sausage and bacon. Add the kale and tomatoes. Let simmer for 10 minutes, until the kale has softened.
  • Add heavy cream. Heat through. Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on the top.



  • In order to make this soup keto friendly, omit the onions and use less kale
