I love that I can prep most of it ahead of time. I always brown the sausage and onions while the broth heats up. Surprisingly, the kale is the thing that takes the longest to cook, but adds flavor and texture to every bite. I often cut the potatoes ahead of time and add them when there is an hour remaining so they don’t get soggy.
