White Bean Soup with Andouille & Collard Greens

Judd Pilossof

Servings: four.

This soup is a complete meal! Just add a warm French baguette and you’re golden. Feel free to experiment with different types of sausage, including the wonderful variety of flavored chicken sausages sold with the other poultry products at the supermarket.

This recipe is excerpted from Robin to the Rescue.


  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 12 oz. andouille or chorizo sausage, diced
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Two 15-oz. cans cannellini or other white beans, drained
  • 1 bunch fresh collard greens, washed well, tough stems removed, and chopped, or two 10-oz. packages frozen chopped collard greens, thawed
  • 1 Tbs. sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • Table salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Heat the oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a simmer.Using a fork, slightly mash most of the white beans and add to the pan. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the collard greens and simmer until wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, season with salt and pepper, and serve.

    Delicious AND so easy! We are not fans of collard greens so I substituted red swiss chard.

    I didn't like this too much. I found the flavor of the sausage to be too prominent. It was all we tasted.
