Sausage, “Potato”, and Spinach Soup- AIP, Paleo

Sausage, "Potato" & Spinach Soup (AIP/Paleo)

Soup is a bit of an undervalued culinary category in my house. My hubby is not a big fan of it and I pretty much reserve it entirely for the months of January and February, although I have no idea why. Well last week, like many of you, I was faced with preparing for the possibility of a lot of snow. We don’t live in an area that is entirely equipped for a lot of snow so I wanted to be prepared in the event of a power outage. We have just about every non electric cooking option possible, as our house including two camp stoves, a gas grill and a charcoal grill so I wasn’t terribly worried but I did want to have some already cooked food on hand so that I wasn’t trying to cook everything from scratch on a camp stove in the snow.

I started looking around for some cozy soup recipes on Pinterest and I found a few that sparked my imagination. The sausage sounded like comfort food, the sweet potatoes are filling and the spinach adds some variety. The creamy base is also really filling as well. This soup is delicious, very filling and the flavors are delicious. This is not one of those soups that will leave you hungry an hour later.

In the end, our power stayed on but we still enjoyed gobbling this soup up and I enjoyed the break from cooking!
