Ben's Hot Dog Soup
|1 Tbsp Olive Oil|
|1 Onion, diced|
|2 Garlic Cloves, minced or pressed|
|1/4 tsp. Aleppo pepper or red-pepper flakes|
|2 lbs yellow potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" chunks|
|2 Carrots, peeled and cut into small pices|
|1 qt. Broth (beef, chicken, or vegetable)|
|1 - 15.5 oz Can Red Kidney Beans or Cannellini Beans, drained|
|2 Cups Kale, fresh or frozen, cut into bite size pieces (no stems)|
|3 or 4 Hot Dogs, cut into bite size pieces (see note in directions)|
|Salt and pepper to taste|
In a large (6-8 qt) pan, saute’ onion in oil until softened, stirring and making sure that the onion does not burn. Add garlic and pepper flakes; cook until fragrant (about a minute). Add potatoes, carrots, broth, and enough water (if needed) so potatoes are covered. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are tender (20 mins or so). Using a blender or immersion blender, puree a cup or two of the soup. The soup should have a creamy consistency but still have texture. Add beans, kale and hot dogs.
Important note: Hotdogs are a choking hazard for young children. Hotdogs should be cut lengthwise before cutting in pieces. Skinless hotdogs are best for children.
