Italian Chorizo Soup

My grandma made the most delicious soups. This was one of the easier soups I’ve made and it’s become a family favorite. There’s so much flavor packed into this soup and it’s easy to customize for your family. 

  • Use low sodium broth
  • If you add pasta, cook it separately and then add it to your soup to avoid it absorbing your broth

Italian Chorizo Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds Chorizo sausage
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 – 900 ml beef broth, low sodium
  • 1 – 900 ml chicken broth, low sodium

  • 2 cups carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups potatoes, cubed
  • 1/2 cup orzo pasta or whichever pasta you choose
  • 2 cups zucchini, cubed
  • 4 cups fresh spinach – packed, rinsed and torn
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Directions:

  1. Cook the pasta in a separate pot.
  2. In a stockpot or dutch oven, brown the sausage with the garlic. Stir in the broth, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
