White Bean, Sausage, and Kale Soup

This White Bean, Sausage, and Kale Soup is one of the first recipes I started making when Bobby (my adorable husband) and I decided we were going to start this looking into this whole “eat healthy thing”. I blame Beyonce, I was a sucker for “kale” the second I saw her in that sweatshirt in 2014. If Beyonce is eating kale to look like that, then I shall eat kale and hope for the best.

The truth is eating healthy is not always fun. I know there are some aliens out there who just love themselves a good salad, but for most of us if we are going to eat healthy- it must be mixed up. I am always on the search for a recipe that will make eating vegetables a little more exciting. This white bean, sausage and kale soup works really well with or without the sausage.

For my vegan friends or people who just shy away from sausage, I have subsistuted the sausage for mushrooms, and while it makes a big flavor difference, it’s still just as delicious. So feel free to do a box of sliced baby bellas or your favorite shroom and go for it.

I like this recipe a lot because it’s light but very flavorful, and it is a great way to get the extra greens in without losing a part of your soul with each bite. If you are like me, and just LOVE a good soup, you can also check out my Lentil Soup or Chicken Soup.


*If you are vegan, you can take out the sausage and only continue with beans and kale, maybe even add in sweet potato as a substitute for the sausage, as I’m typing this maybe next time we should just add sweet potato anyway!

How To:

Take a 3 qt or larger saucepan and
