White Bean, Sausage, and Kale Soup

This soup is simple, hearty and really delicious.  I’ve seen variations of it online, so I decided to create my own.   Here’s how I did it.

First, I gathered all the ingredients – three cans of white beans, two bunches of kale, an onion, two boxes of chicken broth and two packages of Italian sausage (I used one mild and one hot, but you can do whatever combo you prefer).

You start by sauteing the onion in some olive oil in a big pot.

Next you brown the sausage in the same pot as the onions.  When the sausage is browned, add your chopped kale leaves.  Don’t forget to wash the kale really well and remove the center stalk.  You only want the leafy green part, and you’ll want to chop the leaves up fairly small.

Next, you drain and rinse your beans and add them to the pot.

And pour your chicken broth in on top.   I added in about 2 cups of water as well.

Simmer over high heat for about 30 minutes and it’s ready to enjoy!
