This White Bean & Kielbasa Soup might be the most comfiest soup ever. It’s hearty, warm and packed with herbs, wilted spinach, and stewed tomatoes. I’m feeling comfy just thinking about it…
I could seriously eat this every week, and frankly think beans are a really underutilized food.
3/4 lb. kielbasa sausage, sliced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 clove garlic
2 c. chicken stock (I love Better Than Bouillon brand)
3/4 c. diced tomatoes, canned
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. basil
2 cans (15 oz each) cannelloni beans, drained and rinsed
4 c. baby spinach, loosely packed
On medium high heat, quickly sear the sliced sausage pieces on both sides in a saute pan. Set aside.
In a medium pot. add the olive oil and garlic. Cook for two minutes.
Add the chicken stock, diced tomatoes, and dried herbs (oregano, thyme basil). Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 12 minutes.
Add the drained/rinsed cannellini beans and cooked sausage. Simmer for 6-8 minutes.
Add the spinach in batches and cook until wilted.
Serve hot and enjoy!
