Kale, White Bean & Sausage soup is comforting and mineral rich. This soup is made in minutes and delicious on a cold or rainy day. Customize this soup with your favorite greens or sausuage and it will still taste delicious.
2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 C. onion, chopped
1/4 C. leek, chopped
2 Applegate Organics-Sweet Italian Sausage, chopped (this is made with turkey & chicken meat)
1/2 C. carrot, chopped
1/4 C. celery, chopped
6 C. filtered water
1 bunch kale, rinsed, chopped
2 strips kelp, dried, chopped
1 15 oz. can Eden Organic Cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
Herbamare (to taste)
1. In large saucepan, add 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil and saute onions, leeks, sausage, carrots and celery.
2. When onion is translucent, add water, beans kale and kelp. Bring water to a boil, then lower temperature and allow soup to simmer at least 2-3 hours. The longer this can simmer, the better the flavor.
I found that I needed very little seasoning due to the salt in the kelp and the flavor of the sausage.
Serve and enjoy!
