Wash produce before use
Brown the sausage
- Cut a small corner from the sausage packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
While the sausage cooks, start preparing the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining soup ingredients
- Peel and coarsely chop the red onion.
- Trim the ends from the celery; cut the celery on the diagonal into ½-inch lengths.
- Strip the thyme leaves from the stems.
- Trim the root ends from the black garlic cloves and remove the peel; using the side of a knife, smash the garlic.
Cook the soup
Add the sausage and any accumulated juices, vegetable broth, and 2 cups water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the sausage is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the kale and black garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale is just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.
When the soup is almost done, chop the parsley.
Prep the parsley; finish the soup
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
