- 1 pkg, 1 lb white beans ( any variety of choice ) shopping list

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.
