Sausage, Kale and Cannellini Bean Soup March 20, 2013

Filed under: My Recipes — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I have been on a big soup and sandwich kick lately. After three weeks in sunny LA I returned home to equally sunny Alaska but not nearly as warm. This is a very simple soup to throw together. The head of kale was HUGE and a bit too much but overall we loved this soup.


  • 1 lb hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 15 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 piece parmesan rind
  • 1 bunch kale, coarsely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Wash and chop your kale. I opted to tear mine by hand.

In a soup pot, brown sausage. If there is a lot of fat drain it. You want about 1 tbsp. Add your garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute for 2-3 minutes.

Add in all remaining ingredients, except the kale.

Cook over a low boil for 15 minutes. Add in the kale and cook until wilted, another 5 or so minutes.

Serve with a sandwich, or alone, and enjoy!
