I love to make this recipe on an at-home day, like weekends, or an especially blustery day when I’m craving something incredibly warm, tasty, simple and filling.

While I love to cook my own beans, some days, it’s an impossible task. And this soup is, truthfully, just as good made with canned beans. If that’s your kind of day, simply begin the recipe with the veggies, and go from there.

Also, while my guys love kielbasa, like this one I picked up at Whole Foods, substitute your favorite sausage instead. Italian, of course, always works well, but be creative!

Ingredients 

  • 1 pound dry white beans or use 3 cans, drained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion minced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 carrots small diced
  • 2 celery stalks small diced
  • 1 lb smoked kielbasa sausage or your preference, cut into half-moon slices
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 15oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 cups chopped fresh kale
  • fresh parsley chopped, for garnish
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish

Instructions

  • Soak the beans overnight, or boil for 3 minutes and soak for 1 hour. Drain and rinse. Or use canned beans, drained and rinsed.
  • Place the beans in a large stockpot and add enough cold water to barely cover. Simmer over medium heat for about 1-1/2 hours, or according to package instructions. Remove beans from the pot and drain any liquid. Set aside. If using canned beans, skip this step.
  • In the stockpot, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and heat it over medium-high. Then add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery; saute until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • To the veggies add the kielbasa and continue cooking for another minute or until the sausage begins to brown. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, and kale.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the veggies are tender. Add the cooked beans (or canned), salt and pepper to taste.
  • Ladle into bowls and top with fresh parsley and Parmesan cheese.

Notes

Shortcut: Although I love to cook my own beans, sometimes I simply don’t have the time. Substitute two 15-oz cans of white beans, drained and rinsed. Add them at the end of the cooking time.
