Sausage Spinach and White Bean Soup

 

 

 

I don't mean to keep talking about about the weather, but when I wake up to snow on a Sunday morning in nearly mid April, it is worth mentioning. I just wanted to burrow under the covers and stay that way until spring arrives for good. But, I decided to make the most of the day and headed to the grocery store for ingredients to make a cozy and delicious soup to warm us up. There is something about having a pot of soup cooking on the stove that makes a home seem warm and inviting, even on the dreariest of days outside.

This soup recipe was a new one and had wonderful flavor. The combination of the smoked sausage, beans and veggies gave it a hearty texture and we enjoyed it very much. It really was perfect for a chilly Sunday.

 

Sausage Spinach and White Bean Soup

 

1 package smoked sausage links, sliced thin

3 carrots, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 (15 ounce) cans great northern beans

1/2 cup chopped onion

3 cups spinach

1/2 tsp oregano

5 cups chicken broth/2 cups water

Kosher salt and pepper to taste

 

Add all ingredients, except for spinach, to a large stockpot. Bring to boil and then turn down heat and simmer for about 90 minutes, or until vegatables are tender. Add spinach just before serving.

Note: This soup could be made in a crock pot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.

  5. Nothing like a good hearty soup for the crazy "sprinter" we've been having. It's looking better weather wise with some warmth and sunshine for the rest of the week!! Hallelulia!
