Speedy Sausage, Tomato, and White Bean Soup

Servings: 4 to 6

Colorful and comforting, this stewlike soup satisfies, especially on a cold day. There’s a lot of rosemary in the dish, but it doesn’t overwhelm; the sausage and hearty vegetables can more than handle it.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 lb. bulk sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 medium yellow onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium russet potato, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 15.5-oz. can Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14.5-oz. can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 6 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • 2 oz. curly kale, tough stems removed and leaves coarsely chopped (about 2 packed cups)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano, for serving
  • Crusty bread (optional)

Preparation

In a 5- to 6-quart dutch oven or similar heavy-duty pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up, until just cooked through, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add the onion, carrot, and potato to the pot, lower the heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and rosemary, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beans, tomatoes, and stock, bring to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes, skimming as needed. Add the kale and reserved sausage, and simmer for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with the cheese and with crusty bread, if you like.

    Loved this recipe ... but I think there's a bit too much sausage in it ... even after doubling beans and adding an extra 2 cups of broth. I'm going to cut sausage down to about ⅓ lb and try again ... and add more kale. DELICIOUS!!!
