Recipe

This hearty soup is quickly becoming one of my favorites as the nights begin to get colder and fall sets in. The key to the soup in my opinion is choosing a really flavorful vegetarian sausage as the base. If you can't find one, you can always bump up the spices. Spices like thyme, fennel seeds, sage, and rosemary all are delicious. From there it's the traditional soup base of garlic, onion, carrots, and celery plus diced tomatoes, white beans, and spinach. All this creates a rich, filling, and healthy soup that is delicious for lunch or dinner. One last thing, if you can, make this soup a couple of days ahead of time since the flavor only gets better with time.
