Bean and Sausage Soup


Soup! Oh, how I love a delicious, warm, comforting bowl of SOUP. This is a bean soup recipe I adore. Well actually, this is a bean and sausage soup. Who doesn’t love the combination of beans and sausage?

This recipe is easy to put together. I use a package of 15 bean soup, ditching the seasoning packet. If you want you can always put together a combination of beans that you like. I just don’t make beans from scratch often enough for that to make sense.  Another thing I love about this soup is that it uses lean smoke turkey sausage. The brand I used was 95% fat free, has 100 calories for 1/3 of the entire package, and has 9 grams of protein. This soup comes together as a healthy meal for dinner.

If you want to try  new and delicious, healthy meals for dinner, add this soup to your list! Lowfat recipes often lack flavor. This soup is thick, meaty and nicely spiced.  If you’d like more heat, add some red chili pepper or hot sauce.

    I have a new pressure cooker. I have made vegetable and chicken soup so far. 30 minutes and it tastes like it has been cooking all day. Check out the soup recipes in my kitchen.

    Looks wonderful!! I will add it to my hearty soups recipe box. One of my favorite soups is potato and leek. It can be dressed up, with so many things as your fancy dictates — cheddar cheese, smokey ham chunks, broccoli, carrots, white Lima beans and so on. I am also a big fan of chicken and sausage cassoulet, which makes great use of leftovers.
