  • 4 slices Bacon diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large onion (fresh or frozen) diced
  • 1 lb ground turkey sausage (or your favorite kind)

  • In a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat, sauté the diced bacon until crispy.  Remove from the pan and set aside, leaving the bacon fat in the pan.
  • Add the onion and garlic to the pot and sauté until the onion is translucent - about 5 minutes.  
  • Add the sausage to the pan and break apart with a wooden spoon until crumbled and cooked through - about 5 minutes
  • Add chicken broth, cauliflower, kale, and pepper.  Let cook until the cauliflower can be pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
