How to make it

  • How long to make, does not include soaking of the beans
  • Soak beans covered water overnight.
  • Next day drain and rinse.
  • Place beans in stock pot and cover with 12 cups water or stock of choice. Add cubed or diced vegetables and garlic.
  • Bring to a boil and cover and simmer until vegetables and beans are tender.
  • Cook sausage in a pan with a little water until meat is no longer pink. Crumble or break up with a fork.
  • Drain any fat .
  • I use turkey sausage and there is little fat and nothing to drain.
  • Add crumbled sausage to soup pot and cook and simmer 10 minutes longer.
  • Season to taste.
  • Garnish soup if desired with fried bread croutons and/or fresh chopped parsley.
  • Makes enough soup for 12 servings.
  • Freezes well so I use 1/2 and freeze the remainder.
  • Variations: add some cooked small pasta to the soup or some chopped fresh chopped kale or spinach if you wish.

    Comfort food is always welcome. Nice with a crusty bread and a fire roaring.
