White Bean Kale Sausage Soup
I’m not sure how it is where you are, but it’s like an arctic freeze here in New England. It’s even 14 degrees in Atlanta! That’s just crazy! The one thing that absolutely warms me up on a bitter cold day is a good soup. I usually make my go to chicken soup, but I wanted something with a little spice today and I just so happened to have a pound of kale sitting in my fridge. Kale soup it is! I didn’t have any traditional chorizo so I opted for some spicy Italian turkey sausage and it worked perfectly, not to mention it’s a healthier option. This White Bean Kale Sausage Soup is PACKED with nutrients. Kale is a power food in itself, but adding the cannellini beans gives it even more fiber and protein. Oh, and it’s super easy!
Ingredients for White Bean Kale Sausage Soup
1 lb kale
1 lb spicy Italian turkey sausage
1 medium yellow onion (diced)
16 oz. cannellini beans
6 cups low sodium chicken stock
salt & pepper
Step by Step White Bean Kale Sausage Soup
Put a tablespoon of olive oil into a large pan and start cooking your diced onion.
Add in the sausage. I prefer taking it out of the casing first, but you don’t have to.
Once the sausage is browned add half of your chicken stock and bring to a simmer.
Start adding in your kale a bit at a time. As it wilts add more until it is all in the pot.
Add some salt and pepper and the rest of the chicken stock. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the beans and simmer for 10-15 more minutes.
You won’t be disappointed. This yummy, warm White Bean Kale Sausage Soup you will eat right up. And if you don’t like spicy you can switch out the spicy sausage for sweet. Either way, it’s delicious!!
