Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound kielbasa or other smoked sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 bunch kale, red or green, stems removed, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Heat canola oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion and celery, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 8 - 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add the garlic and the potatoes and stir.
  2. Add the chicken broth and kielbasa. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 - 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add the kale and cook 1 - 2 minutes more. Turn off the heat, cover and set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook 1 - 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add half and half, whisking constantly. Whisk in a ladle-full of the chicken broth from the Dutch oven to prevent it from becoming too thick to work with.
  4. Transfer the thickened combination to the Dutch oven.
  5. Bring the soup back up to a simmer and cook over low heat until thickened. Stir in Dijon mustard and Worcestershire. Season to taste with salt and black pepper and serve.
