One-Pot Italian Sausage Soup

with Cream and Potatoes

Any time parents can add extra vegetables into a meal is a bonus. In this recipe, the potatoes, spinach and carrots add fibre, vitamins and minerals, with the garlic and onion helping to boost the immune system during these cold winter days.

HelloFresh brings healthy, easy-to-make meals to the kitchens of busy hockey families that come with step-by-step instructions. Knowing what you'll be making and how long it will take is information valuable to anybody as busy as a hockey parent by creating stress-free dinners for the week.

This dish adds a twist to a family favourite and is easy for the kids to help out with the meal prep. With just about 30 minutes of cook time and six easy steps to enjoy, this is a quick recipe that hockey families can enjoy together.

1. Prep

Halve potatoes lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch pieces (use whole onion for 4 ppl). Peel, then cut carrot into 1/4-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Roughly chop spinach.

2. Cook potatoes and veggies

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then potatoes, onions, carrots and half the Italian Seasoning. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes and veggies soften slightly, 4-5 min. Transfer potatoes and veggies to a large bowl.

3. Cook sausage

Reduce heat to medium, then add sausage to the pot. Cook, breaking up sausage into bitesized pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.

4. Start soup

Add flour, half the garlic and remaining Italian Seasoning to the pot with sausage. Cook, stirring often, until sausage is coated, 1 min. Add broth concentrate, potatoes and veggies and 2 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl). Bring to a simmer and cook until veggies are tender and broth thickens slightly, 10-12 min. Add cream and spinach to the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach wilts, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (TIP: If you prefer a more brothy soup, add more water, 1/4 cup at a time.)

5. Toast ciabatta

While soup simmers, halve ciabatta. Add remaining garlic and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Drizzle or brush garlic oil onto cut sides of ciabatta. Add ciabatta directly to the middle rack of the oven, cut-side up. Toast until golden-brown, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!)

6. Finish and serve

Divide Italian sausage soup between bowls. Sprinkle chili flakes over top, to taste. Serve garlic ciabatta on the side for dipping.
