    Here’s a tasty soup recipe that features many current farmers’ market offerings.

    Sausage, Potato, and Beet Green Soup

    • 1 pound ground pork
    • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
    • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 1 pound potatoes, cut in 3/4-inch chunks
    • 4 cups chopped beet greens

    In a large bowl, combine the ground pork, Italian seasoning, salt, paprika, fennel seeds, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the pork mixture, onion, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until the meat is browned. Pour into a slow cooker.

    Stir in the broth, tomatoes with their juices, potatoes and beet greens. Cover and set to low for eight hours. Enjoy.
