Hearty sausage soup with white beans and kale

What could be more comforting on a cold, rainy day than Sausage Soup? It takes time, but it isn’t like you have anywhere to go on a rainy weekend anyway, so stay at home and cook some soup to last you the week


  • Olive Oil
  • 8 oz Sausage; remove skin, crumble
  • approx 1/2 cup dried white beans
  • medium yellow onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • rosemary
  • 6 cups pork stock
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 2 cups diced potatos
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Bring your pork stock to a simmer.
  • In a large soup pot over medium, heat the olive oil and cook the crumbled sausage until lightly browned. With a slotted spoon remove the sausage.
  • Add onion to pot and cook about 4 minutes, add in the garlic and cook another 3 minutes.
  • Add the beans and pork stock.
  • Increase heat to bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours
  • Add potatoes and sausage and cook for another hour partly covered.
  • Add kale and cook for another hour. Stir it often, soup will thicken considerably.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste

Eat with crusty bread. On the second or third day, add an appropriate hot sauce like Tabasco.
