TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - This savory soup is so full of flavor and wonderful texture that you’ll crave it all year long, not just in the fall.

Sweet potato-sausage soup by Mama Steph

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 to 12 ounces smoked link sausage
  • 1 medium yellow or white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth (you can even use water in a pinch)
  • 4 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt or seasoned salt
  • ½ pound turnip greens, roughly chopped


  • In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Add sausage and turnip greens; cook until greens are wilted, about 5 minutes.
  • Tip: If soup boils too hard, you may need to add an extra cup of water or broth to make up for evaporation.
