Loaded with potatoes, kale, potatoes and white beans, and faux sausage, this spicy soup is almost a stew. Made in the Instant Pot or pressure cooker, it will be on the table in 30 minutes--no exaggeration!
Sauté the onions and garlic in the pressure cooker until the onions are translucent, about 10 mintues. Add the water, tomatoes, potatoes, and kale, lock the lid in place and cook on high pressure 5 minutes. Quick release the pressure.
Alternatively, heat the first tablespoon of oil in a soup pot. Over medium flame, sauté the onions until translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook a few more minutes. Add the water, tomatoes, potatoes, and kale. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes.
While the soup cooks, heat the remaining oil in a wide (preferably non-stick skillet.) Using a wooden spoon to smash the pieces, cook the veggie sausage with smoked paprika until nicely browned.
