This soup is SO good. The spice of the sausage and the red peppers, the sweetness of the carrot, and the warming feeling you get when you eat this. It is perfect for a cold day. :)
In a frying pan fry together 2 tbsp. butter, 2 tbsp. olive oil, 1 cup chopped onions, 1 cup chopped carrots, salt and pepper, and some hot pepper spices. (I use Epicure's Cinco Pepper blend)
Fry the onions and stuff until the onions are kinda see-through and the carrots are cooked but not too soft.
Put everything into a medium/big pot. Chop up a bunch of kale, and add that to the stuff.
Fry everything for a little bit, then add about a cup of chicken broth. Add chicken broth until it is the right consistency for you.
Enjoy this with some French bread. Eat it warm. :)
