White Beans with Spinach & Sausage

this soup is definitely a staple in our house. this makes enough for 2 nights (for 2 people). serve it with some rustic-ass bread

Ingredients

  • 1 lb kielbasa (cut into ~half inch slices)
  • 2 cups chicken or veggie broth
  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 diced onion (small)

  • 2-14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 big bag of fresh spinach
  • Salt and pepper

Steps

  1. Cook the kielbasa in your olive oil, trying to get some nice color on them (i prefer to cook them in the same pot instead of a different pan to keep all that flavorful fond)
  2. Add garlic and onion — cook until onions are translucent
  3. Add broth, potatoes, beans, italian seasoning, and tomatoes
  4. Place on medium high heat and simmer for 15-30 minutes — make sure the potatoes are soft, but not mushy
  5. Add in spinach and cook until they wilt
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste
