Families in the Kitchen: Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup


One of our favorite meals is soup, salad and bread sticks. They just go good together anytime. The recipe below is one of our all time favorite soups. It has been a staple for when we have taken meals to families or to potlucks. Just all round good.

Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup

1 large onion, diced
3 T. olive oil
1 pound of smoked sausage or kielbasa, cut into bite-sized pieces (we also have substituted turkey sausage)
2 cloves of crushed garlic
4 carrots cut into small cubes
3 cups of white beans
5 cups of chicken stock
3 cups of chopped kale (our family uses roughly about 1 ½ cups and sometimes we have substituted spinach)
Salt and pepper

Chop and sauté your onions and garlic (until they are golden brown) in olive oil in a large stock pot. Add your sausage and cook until it is the desired tenderness that you like. Add carrots and sauté so that they are incorporated into the onion and garlic mixture. 

Add the chicken stock, white beans and kale. Simmer for roughly for one-hour. 

Enjoy
