Recipe

This simple Sausage, White Bean, and Spinach Soup is packed with flavor and makes a delicious and healthy dinner or lunch.

It's official - I am on a soup kick. It started out with making some of my old favorites like this Butternut Squash Soup (I make the Ancho Chili version with chipotles) and this Slow Cooker Chicken Quinoa Soup with Kale. But this week I decided to move on to some new recipes and fell in love with this easy Sausage, White Bean, and Spinach soup.

Everything starts with the sausage since it adds a ton of flavor to the dish without adding too many calories as long as you choose a healthier sausage. Then the classic soup starters make their appearance along with some diced Italian tomatoes. Everything is finished with a bay leaf, some oregano, and some fresh spinach for greens. It comes together in under 30 minutes but if you have time I recommend making it a couple days before you intend to eat it since the flavors only get better with time. Served with a big green salad, it's the perfect dinner for a cool night in.
