Kale and Sausage Soup

Kale and White Bean Soup With Spicy Sausage

Diana Rattray
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 crusty warm rolls.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 8 to 12 ounces andouille sausage or other smoked sausage, diced or thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped, about 8 to 10 cups chopped
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) white beans, such as Great Northern, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Dash Tabasco or similar hot pepper sauce, optional


In a large skillet 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. Add remaining ingredients; cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Taste and adjust salt, as needed.
Serves 8.
