Number of Servings: 5


    Ground Pork Sausage, 1 lb.
    Fresh Celery, 10 stalks
    Fresh Carrots, 10
    Raw Onion, 1/2
    Red Potatoes, 2
    Bell Peppers, 2
    Jalapeno Pepper, 1
    Broccoli, 1 large head
    Black Pepper
    Cayenne Pepper
    Chili Powder
    Garlic Powder
    Trader Joe's Chicken Broth Concentrate, 1 pouch


Chop the carrots, celery, and onion, and add to a large stock pot or soup kettle. Add enough water to cover the vegetables and set to boil for 10 minutes.

While the vegetables are boiling, chop the potatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, and the jalapeno (throw away the jalapeno seeds unless you want the soup to be VERY spicy) and set aside. Cook the sausage in a pan, adding black pepper and cayenne for extra flavor if desired. Set aside.

After ten minutes of boiling (more won't hurt if you are pressed for time), take the vegetables from the pot and blend them, either by transferring to a blender or with an immersion blender. Blend until smooth and return the puree to the stock pot.

Add the potatoes, peppers, jalapeno, and sausage to the pot and set it to boil. Add the broth concentrate packet and enough water to cover all of the ingredients again, then add spices to taste. Let the soup boil for an hour to make sure the potatoes are soft, and add the broccoli about ten minutes before you're ready to eat (earlier makes it disintegrate). Makes 5 large bowls. Goes great with sourdough or beer bread.

  • Incredible!
    I use 32 oz of regular chicken broth instead of the concentrate and water. And I've used both pork and turkey sausage. Both are great. I also like to use 3 red peppers and 1 1/2 bell peppers. - 3/8/11
