Keyword: Gluten-free, grain-free, dairy free
Servings: 6 servings


  • 2 tbsp extra olive oil or ghee
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 1 lb italian turkey sausage Ground turkey works well, too. Just add a couple teaspoons of italian seasoning to taste.
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning blend
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 bunches kale, chard or spinach chopped or torn Any greens will work. Frozen is great, too! If using fresh kale or chard, remove from stem before chopping
  • 2 cups coconut milk (1 can)
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard Or 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 12-15 oz gnocci or pasta


  • Heat oil or ghee in a large stockpot and saute onion until translucent. Then add sausage and cook until browned.
  • Once meat is browned, add garlic and saute a few minutes (you will start to smell it). Add stock, remaining seasonings and bring to boil. Once boiling, reduce to simmer.
  • Add greens and stir in coconut milk, mustard and vinegar. Bring back to a simmer.
  • In the last few minutes of cooking, add gnocchi or pasta. Simmer until cooked through (the fresh pastas will only take a minute or so; dried longer). If planning leftovers, some prefer prepare gnocchi or pasta separately and add to each bowl so it doesn't break down too much when storing).
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste!
