SMOKED SAUSAGE & WHITE BEAN SOUP

If you’re running out of ideas for soups or looking for something different, this is a must go! There are so many different types of sausages out there and can be used many different ways. One of my favorites is kielbasa; as a kid I loved it with cheese on crackers. But with it being pretty frigid this Winter all I’ve been wanting is soup. Here’s one that’s a bit different than your stereotypical soup options that’s packed with lots of flavor!

This soup is packed with protein, fiber, and complex carbs which are the best carbs. If you’re not a veggie person, this is the best way to get your veggies. The kielbasa really infuses a nice smoked, salty flavor to the broth and it doesn’t take much to fill you up. If you’re not feeling up to using the rainbow chard you can replace it with another hearty green like collard greens, kale, even spinach will do. As with most recipes on here, you can tweak the ingredients list that works best for you. Using another type of sausage like something spicy is entirely up to you. Enjoy!
