Leek, White Bean, and Sausage Soup
This Leek, White Bean, and Sausage Soup is perfect for a cozy night in. Quick enough for a weekday but comforting enough for a Sunday supper. Sure to be a fav!
- 5 Links Hot Italian Chicken Sausage
- 2 Leeks, cleaned and sliced
- 1 1/2 tbsp Garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 1/2 cup White Wine
- 2 small bunches or 1 large bunch of Kale, stems removed and chopped
- 3 cans Cannellini Beans beans, drained
- 1 qt (4 cups) Chicken Stock
- 1 lemon, juice
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and sear the chicken sausage one side at a time. When seared on both sides use tongs and kitchen shears to cut into bite sized pieces. Turn off heat and leave it aside until they are ready to be added to the soup
In a large stock pot over medium heat add butter, leeks, and minced garlic. Cook while stirring until fragrant and leeks begin to cook. Season with salt and pepper. Add white wine and allow to cook out.
Now add drained beans. Using a masher, partially mash beans leaving 1/3-1/2 of them whole. Add in sausage and chicken stock and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes. Turn heat to low, add chopped kale and put a lid and cook for 5 minutes.
Toast some bread, and enjoy!
