Spicy Sausage & Bok Choy Soup

on March 19, 2014

If you want a very low carb and low calorie filling meal, you might like this soup made with bok choy, which is the lowest carb of the cabbage family, and can of course be made with other cabbage or kale at a somewhat higher carb-cost.  This is also an inexpensive meal.  The sausage gives the rather bland bok choy a lovely flavor.

For medium spicy choose a sausage like andouille or chorizo, for mild use a Polish or Italian type of dense sausage.

12oz (or more) of sausage

2 Tbs dripping

1/2 cup diced onion

1 large head bok choy (about 10 cups)

4 cups beef or chicken stock

Opt: 1/2 tsp pepper flakes

Saute the onion and sausage in the dripping, or other fat, until it is a bit browned, then add the bok choy and saute a further 3-4 minutes before adding the stock. You might need to add some additional broth or water if you want a soupier soup. The flavors should be nicely combined after 30 minutes.

I pour the whole thing into my slow cooker and let it simmer for several hours.
