Andouille Sausage and Potato Soup

_MG_8750

I am a big fan of hearty soups with a side salad because I love to eat something healthy along side a heavier dish. I decided to put whole broccoli florets on top of the soup to substitute for a salad and it turned out great. This way you feel indulgent while also giving your body a pat on the back. This is the perfect soup for winter because its hearty, warming and just a big bowl of love. Serve this with some crusty bread and butter and dinner is done.
