This is a hearty soup made with spicy sausage, canned white beans, and chopped kale, along with tomatoes and other vegetables. This soup makes a delicious meal with hot baked cornbread or warm crusty rolls.
We made this with great northern beans and spicy andouille sausage. Polish sausage or another type of smoked sausage may be used as well.
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup onion (diced)
- 1 cup red bell pepper (diced)
- 1 cup celery (diced)
- 1/2 cup carrot (diced)
- 8 to 12 ounces andouille sausage (or smoked sausages, diced or thinly sliced)
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 bunch kale (chopped, about 8 to 10 cups)
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes (undrained)

In a large skillet or sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add onions, bell pepper, celery, carrots, and sausage. Sauté, stirring, until onion is just tender.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Add kale and garlic; cover and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
