Root vegetable soup with sizzled sausage

all details

If the root vegetables are large then dice instead of slice, as the slices will be too big to eat. The cabbage can be swapped for cavolo nero, kale or silverbeet. This is wonderful ladled over thick slices of grilled country bread brushed with garlicky olive oil.
