Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup 

12 oz. Italian Sausage links (I used the Aldi’s turkey sausage)
1/4 c. water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 TB. olive oil
2 (15 oz.) cans of Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
2 (14 oz.) chicken broth (or about 4 c. water and 4 chicken bouillon cubes)
*14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
dash of garlic powder
4 c. chopped kale
black pepper to taste

Take the sausage out of the casings and roll into little balls, bite size ones. Place in a large soup pot, add the water, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes (covered). Uncover and cook for 5 more minutes till meatballs are cooked through. Take out and set aside.

Heat the oil in the same pot, add the garlic and onion and cook till tender.  Add the beans, broth, undrained tomatoes, oregano, basil and garlic. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cooked sausage and kale, simmer till kale is tender (this does not take very long, 5 -10 minutes).  Season with pepper, if needed.

* Can use a can of Italian Style diced tomatoes (14 1/2 oz.) in place of the regular diced tomatoes, basil, oregano and garlic.

ENJOY!!
