white bean and sausage soup

Getting bored of soup yet??
*scoff*
I think not!
So easy and so tasty!


And this one is no different.....creamy white beans, sausage, and fresh spinach floating around in there....what's more to love?

White Bean and Sausage Soup
Serves 4-6.
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, diced
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 links smoked sausage, diced into half moons (any sausage you like will work....I went with a turkey sausage here....)
2 cans white beans, drained and rinsed (any kind you like....I almost always use Italian cannelloni beans)
2 bay leaves
Handful of fresh thyme sprigs
6 cups chicken stock
3-4 handfuls fresh spinach, cleaned and torn into bite size pieces

Melt butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat.  Add onion and saute until golden, about 5 minutes.  Add garlic and saute until fragrant about 30 seconds.  Add sausage and saute until the sausage starts to caramelize.  Add the beans, bay leaves, thyme and stock and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 20-30 minutes.  Add spinach and let wilt, about a minute, and serve before the spinach gets gushy :)  Enjoy!!
