Kale, Bean & Spicy Italian Sausage Soup

A couple of weeks ago I was driving home from work, listening to the radio, minding my own business and the weather and news comes on…”Tonight the temperatures will drop to -44C!” I almost drove off the road! So immediately I think…”I’m making soup tonight!”

So I get home and start looking to see what I have in my cupboard. In all honesty its been a pretty cold winter and both my hubs and I are both getting over a cold, so soup for dinner has become a very popular choice for us!

So what you need:

Beans – I had a can of PC Blue Menu Six Bean Medley (chickpeas, dark red kidney beans, black-eyed peas, white kidney beans, romano beans, baby lima beans)
Diced Tomatoes
Baby Bok Choy
Vegetable Broth
Chili Pepper Flakes
Italian Spicy Sausage

I know it is probably better to make your own broth and not use canned vegetables but I used what I had on hand.

SO take a big pot and took a little bit of oil and saute my carrots and celery. Once they have softened I put in the broth and also put in some freshly chopped garlic! God I love garlic! Once that gets going I throw in my diced tomatoes and juice, beans (make sure you drain and rinse them first), chopped Kale and chopped Baby Bok Choy. Once this is back to simmering I then take my Italian Spicy Sausage and add that to the soup.

Side Note – I get my Italian Spicy Sausage from the local deli that makes them in house. These I had bought for another recipe and didn’t use right away so it was perfect to use them in this. I slice mine into smaller bites and then add them to the soup to cook.

I then add in Salt and Pepper and Chili Pepper Flakes for some kick!

    That is awesome. Funny with same cold temps we have been eating more home made soups this winter. Definitely going to make this one. Looks so easy to make and presentation is good.
