White Bean Soup with Kale and Hot Turkey Sausage

When the weather starts to get colder outside, sometimes nothing else will do but a warm bowl of soup.  This White Bean Soup with Kale and Hot Turkey Sausage is hearty, warm, and spicy – just the way I like it.  The original recipe calls for Spanish chorizo but I couldn’t find chicken chorizo in my store (bummer) so I substituted hot turkey sausage.  I cooked the sausage first before beginning and this soup came together pretty quickly.  It wasn’t until I was almost finished making this soup that I realized it’s nearly identical to the Kale, Bean, and Sausage Soup with Parmesan Cheese I made last month.  Since I devoured that soup and discovered I love kale, I knew this soup wouldn’t last long either. 

The ingredients:

Sauté onion and garlic in a pan and cook until soft.  Add in chopped sausage.  (If using chorizo, add chorizo to the pan first and cook for a minute before adding onion and garlic.)

Warm broth in a microwave for 3 minutes and add to the pan with beans.  Bring to a boil. 

Stir in kale and black pepper and cook over medium heat for 6 minutes. 

Additions:  None

Omissions:  None
