Split Pea Soup with Mixed Greens

Leafy Green Mix
The Weather has turned cool and rainy again and all I've wanted to do is make warm food. I found this recipe for Split Pea Soup with Greens and nothing is better on a rainy night than a bowl of split pea. This recipe calls for 3 to 4 cups of kale. I tried to use a majority if not all the leafy greens that were hanging out in the refrigerator, but mostly some red mustard, curly mustard, and Siberian kale.
The Finished Product
While I liked the outcome of this soup it was a little thinner than what i normally like for split pea. It had a nice smoky flavor from the sausage and combined with the various greens it had a little spicy kick. The greens are a good addition to the soup, giving a crunch. A perfect meal to enjoy while watching the soupy weather.
