  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage , sliced
  • 1/2 cup Onion , diced
  • 15 ounce Diced tomatoes
  • 32 ounce Chicken broth
  • 8 ounce Kale stem removed, and chopped


  • Set Instant Pot to saute normal or low and brown the sausage. 
  • Turn Instant Pot off and add onions, diced tomatoes, and chicken broth to the pot.
  • Fasten the lid on your Instant Pot or pressure cooker and close the steam valve. Set to manual, pressure, high for 15 minutes.
  • While the soup cooks place the chopped kale in a microwave safe dish with about 1/2 a cup of water and then cover and cook in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or until the kale is tender but still bright green. Remove, drain water, and set aside. 
  • After the time is up let the pressure cooker sit for about 10 minutes and then release the rest of the steam by opening the valve carefully. 
  • Open the lid to your pressure cooker and add kale before serving.


NOTE: If you do not want to steam your kale separately you can place it in the pressure cooker/Instant Pot along with the other ingredients and cook them all together at the same time. This tastes just as good the kale just won't have the vibrant green color.
