Sausage and Kale Stew

Sausage and Kale Stew

The notes app on my phone holds the contents of my life. From lists of what to get at the feed store, quotes I like to projects for the farm, it has everything.  Where it really comes into its own though is recipes.  Almost every recipe I have ever written has started out as a note in my phone.

This recipe has lived there for awhile. It started out as a way to use up some sausages that wouldn't quite have spread to a family meal, but the kids loved it and it has since come into regular rotation. 


  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 10 sausages, removed from their casings
  • 3 garlic gloves, finely chopped
  • 5x medium waxy potatoes, chopped into 1cm cubes
  • 0.5tsp black pepper
  • 3 litres of stock (we use chicken)
  • 200g chopped kale
  • Juice of half a lemon (optional)
  • salt to taste


  1. On a low heat, sauté the onion and the sausages in the butter, breaking up the sausage meat into bite sized pieces. 
  2. When the sausage is cooked through and the onions are soft, add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes until garlic is soft.
  3. Add the potatoes, pepper and stock to the pot. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. Add salt to taste.
  4. Add kale and lemon juice if wanted at the last minute before serving.
