Creamy Kale & Sausage Gnocchi Soup

I’m all about a good soup recipe that is easy to toss into a pot together and brew up. That’s pretty much what I did with this one! I have been loving our venison sausage from Jeff’s Wisconsin buck to add into dinner recipes. Check out the recipe below!


  • 1 lb ground venison sausage
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 32oz chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup diced white onion
  • 1 12oz jar roasted red peppers, drained and diced
  • 1 big bunch of kale, ripped into small chunks
  • 1 16oz pack of potato gnocchi
  • 1 pint half and half


  1. Add the venison to a large pot. Season with pepper, salt, and garlic powder, then ground it up until browned and cooked through. Drain excess grease, and return back to pot.
  2. Add chicken stock, onions, and red peppers. Bring soup to a simmer and let it go for about two minutes.
  3. Then add in the kale, gnocchi, and the half and half. Continue cooking for 5-8 minutes, or until gnocchi is cooked through. Feel free to season more with a little salt and pepper.
  4. Serve it up with a little fresh parmesan if desired, and enjoy!
