Ingredients

Method

  • Olive oil
  • 480g pork sausages, removed from the casings
  • 6 rashers streaky bacon, thinly sliced 
  • 1 brown onion, peeled and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Pinch of chilli flakes 
  • 3L chicken stock
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 cups kale or spinach, torn
  • 1 cup cream
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Freshly grated parmesan, to finish
 
  1. Place a large saucepan over a medium heat, and drizzle generously with olive oil. Add the pork sausage to the pot, and use a spoon to break the sausage into smaller pieces as it cooks. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the sausage meat begins to caramelise, then add the bacon and cook for a further 3-4 minutes. 
  2. Add the onion, garlic, dried oregano and chilli flakes to the saucepan, and cook while stirring for 3-4 minutes or until the onion becomes translucent. 
  3. Carefully pour the chicken stock into the pot, and simmer for 5-10 minutes, before adding the broccoli florets and kale. Simmer for a remaining 4-5 minutes or until the broccoli is al dente. 
  4. To finish the soup, stir through the cream and lemon juice, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Finish with freshly grated parmesan and serve.
