Do you need a quick dinner idea that can be made in about 20 minutes? This hearty and healthy soup is perfect for busy, cold weather days.
I love chicken sausage, I have a favorite one that I get at my local grocery store. It has spinach, feta and fennel in it. But, this recipe would work well with regular Italian sausage as well.
I also love cooked leafy greens. Spinach, kale, beat greens, or Swiss chard, I can’t get get enough of them. I’ve shared that I grew up in Papua New Guinea. They cook all kinds of greens there, even the leaves of pumpkins, which are kind of furry. So when I get a chance, I throw spinach into everything. Plus it’s sooo good for you. I really think that my body craves green veggies. I really feel better when I eat them.
Remove the sausages from their casings. In a large saucepan, cook the sausage completely, breaking apart with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent. Add the beans, stock and water. Bring to a boil, season to taste. Just before serving add the spinach and cook until it just wilts.
