Southern Weather Inspired Soup

I love eating soups. But when the fall and winter seasons roll around in Texas, it sometimes can be challenging to enjoy a nice warm and tasty soup because it’s usually hot and humid here. Actually to tell you the truth you never know what to expect from the Texas weather.

Anyway back to the recipe.

We were delighted to have our first cold front arrived yesterday. It was excellent! I was so thrilled that it inspired me to cook some soup. I prepared this incredibly simple and savory recipe for Zucchini Sausage Soup. It has excellent fresh flavors and fulfills that comfort food craving all at once.

 

Zucchini Sausage Soup

Ingredients

1 16-oz roll pork sausage

1/2 C diced onion

2 carrots, sliced

2 stalks celery, sliced

2 cups diced zucchini

1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes

2 C beef broth

1/2 tsp ground sage

1/2 tsp thyme

Parmesan cheese, for topping

Directions

 

1. Cook the sausage & onions in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir to crumble sausage. Drain if necessary.

2. Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Cover and simmer for forty five minutes, until vegetables are soft. Serve topped with shredded Parmesan cheese.

Court’s Cooking Notes: If you’re in a rush, you can microwave the carrots and celery in a small covered bowl with 1/4 cup water for four minutes. Add the zucchini and microwave another two minutes. Then add everything to the soup. You can increase the heat to medium low and cook for approximately ten-fifteen minutes and it will be done.
