Tuscan Tomato Soup with White Beans, Kale and Sausage
Recipe: Tuscan Tomato Soup with White Beans, Kale and Sausage

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large sauté pan combine sausage and ¼ cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove cover and cook until the sausage is nicely browned, about 5 additional minutes. When sausage is cool enough to handle, slice into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  2. Meanwhile, in a heavy-bottomed stockpot, heat the olive oil. Sauté onion, garlic and kale about 6 minutes, stirring. Stir in stock and tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in cooked sausage and beans. Simmer soup until kale is tender, an additional 15 minutes. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Top each bowl with freshly grated Parmesan, basil and stir.

*Swiss chard or spinach would be great additions or substitutions for the kale. The Swiss chard, however, needs only a 15 minutes simmer and the spinach would be stirred in at the last minute

Active Time: 15 minutes

Simmer Time: apx. 30 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 6
