PREPARING THE SOUP
Heat a large Dutch oven to medium-high heat.
Add the Fullblood Wagyu sweet Italian sausage in small portions. Use a wooden spoon to break up the sausage into small pieces as it browns.
Add the diced yellow onion, leeks, red bell peppers, poblano peppers, carrots, and celery. Cook for 5 minutes until fragrant.
Add the fire roasted diced tomatoes (from the can), beef stock, diced yellow potatoes, minced garlic, and large sprig of thyme.
Cover the soup, and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Then, reduce the heat to low.
After the soup has been cooking for 30 minutes, add the diced zucchini.
Simmer for 30 minutes longer or until the vegetables are tender (check the potatoes, if you’re using them, or the carrots for tenderness).
Add the kale, and stir to wilt.
Remove the sprig of thyme from the soup, and discard.
Add the sherry vinegar, and season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Scoop into bowls, serve, and enjoy!
