White Bean Kale and Sausage Stew Recipe

Hearty kale and sausage stew – in five minutes flat.

This soup – with FIVE ingredients and FIVE minutes total time – is packed with flavor that make your taste buds dance.  (Think Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana, only easier and cheaper!) And yet – grocery bag to table in just about 5 minutes flat! Win – win, definitely.

You can get this on the table and finish eating dinner quicker that you can drive through anywhere! This is my current go-to favorite hearty main dish soup. I have made it six times in just the last month.

Weeknight dinner stress SOLVED.



Serves 4 to 6, as a main course

2 tablespoons olive oil
8 ounces cooked sweet Italian sausage, without casings
4 cups diced kale
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cans (15 ounces each) white cannellini beans, drained

Heat oil in a stock pot or Dutch oven to medium high heat. Place sausage and kale in pot and break sausage into small crumbles with a fork or potato masher, cooking until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.

Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. This will take about 3 minutes.

Add in beans and turn off heat and taste and add salt and pepper to taste as desired. Serve immediately.

Crusty French bread optional, but encouraged.
