Recipe

One of my favorite tricks for adding lots of flavor to soup is using low fat turkey sausage as the base. Not only does it add protein to almost any soup, it adds a great depth of flavor without too many calories. You can use sweet or hot sausage depending on your preference and the recipe. For this recipe, I like to pair the sausage with earthy chickpeas and butternut squash for a hearty and filling soup.
