[SAME GREAT RECIPE BUT WITH PRETTIER PHOTOS!]
I have once again been neglectful on the blog. It has been another crazy month so far.
Jake’s grandmother has been very ill and passed away 2 weeks ago. We are both very saddened by this loss but also know she is in a better place. We loved her very much.
We also completed our second and final race of the year! The Christmas Town Dash 8k! It was a blast! It’s so much fun running through an amusement park like a little kid! The park is gorgeous always and one of my favorite amusement parks that I have gone to since I was a kid. I even got to meet a Princess Cow (race sponsored by Chickfila). Cause #princesscowsarebetterthannormalcows
We also have decked the halls in our house. The weekend of Thanksgiving we went through the shed to bring out our annual friends and Christmas tree. We even decided to take a few Christmas pictures to send for our Christmas cards this year! SO CUTE. I love Jake and that he puts up with my shenanigans. Max too. 😉
I have also accumulated a lot of recipes on my camera that I just simply haven’t had time to share! GAH! With it becoming the colder months, I dream about soups. Literally. Like I was dreaming about Minestrone soup the other night.
I am also prepping for my next Whole30 starting January 11th. Who’s with me? I can start a support group on FB and we can discuss meals, I can provide meal plans/recipes, and motivation to keep going! Let’s kick the year off right!
Now back to this soup. This soup is a simple meat and potatoes soup with a Whole30 spin. Total awesomeness. I used coconut milk instead of real dairy to give it a creamy texture and sautéed some chicken apple sausage for the protein. The result? A savory creamy soup with a hint of sweetness from the sausage. I could eat this every week!
After this soup being such a big hit during my past Whole30 Recipes page takeovers, I decided to re shoot this recipe! And every time I make this soup, I still can't believe how easy and DELICIOUS it is!

SINDY RIVERA says
This was a hit at my house.. used almond milk cause I didn't have coconut milk... a little too spicy for the kids but the husband who doesnt like soup usually... loved it!
Thank you Sindy It's always awesome when the hubby likes it! It's a hit with my hubs too! <3
Can you make this in an Instapot?
Yup! Just updated this recipe to include Instant Pot instructions! 🙂
The picture is the recipe looks like it has kale? But it is not listed as an ingredient. Did you add kale? And if so, how much?
I added several handfuls of chopped kale. I stirred it in 10 minutes prior to serving! 🙂
Can you use the aidells chicken sausage they sell at Costco?
You can use whatever chicken sausage you like! However, if you are on the Whole30 I believe that the apple flavor is the only compliant flavor of aidells.
This looks great! Why do you prefer the coconut milk from a can?
I find coconut milk from a can is creamier. It gives the soup a better flavor IMO. But feel free to use any compliant coconut milk you like!
Whitney Lake says
Go to recipe. My husband and I love it. Whole 30 or not it's amazing! Thank you so much!
Hi Whitney! Comments like yours puts a huge smile on my face!! SO glad you love it as much as I do!
I found this recipe after seeing it highlighted on the Whole30 Facebook page, so I came to your site and got the recipe. I just want to say this is so delicious!!! I'm not usually a big fan of chicken sausage, but these flavors meld so well together. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to making more of your recipes!
Delicious. I added whole30 compliant bacon and it was a hit !!
Everything is better with bacon! So glad you enjoyed it Lynn! 😄

how can I print recipes off from this site
This is an older recipe (before our forms were installed) I'm going back and updating them now. The easiest way to print is to press "Control" + "P" to print this whole page. The newer recipes are easier to print and view from your mobile device 🙂
I just corrected it. There is now a print button at the bottom ☺️
