Love This Soup!
I got a great recipe for soup from one of the ladies at work. There is something very addictive about this soup; you'll find yourself craving it.
Sausage, Bean and Green Soup
2 Tbsp olive oil
1-1/2lb Italian sausage
1 med. onion, chopped and 2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 carrot and 1 potato, chopped
1 bay leaf
2 cans white beans, drained
4 cups of green leaves (I use spinach, but you can also use broccoli rabe or any greens)
2 quarts chicken stock
In large soup pan over medium heat, cook sausage (take out of skin) in olive oil. Let brown and add vegetables, bay leaf and beans. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 5-10 minutes to soften veggies. Add greens and cook another few minutes. Pour in chicken stock. Stir and cover pan. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer 15-30 minutes.
That's it! I serve it with a thick, hearty bread. If you try this recipe, drop a note and let me know what you think! And for those of you in other countries, can you get these ingredients easily? If not, what would you use for a substitute?
