White Bean and Sausage Soup

This recipe comes from one of my favorite magazines Everyday Food. It is absolutely perfect for the last cool days of Spring.

You need just a few ingredients, sausage, shallots or onions, garlic, basil, beef broth, white beans and diced tomatoes.

Chop up your shallots and garlic.

Remove the sausage from the casings. In a dutch oven cook the sausage over medium high heat with the shallots and garlic. Cook until the sausage is browned and the shallots or onion have softened, about 8 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and the broth and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer partially covered for 10 minutes. Add in the beans, salt, pepper and basil and let it heat through, about 2 minutes.

Garnish with some Parmesan cheese and you are ready to eat! This soup is delicious and simple, but really fills you up. This will be a favorite of yours if you are a fan of sausage.


  1. That looks delicious and simple. Perfect for a weeknight meal.

  2. I made something very similar to that a few months ago. It was outstanding! Thanks for reminding me of it.

  3. Yummm, that looks delish..i need to try it..


  4. Pappy is going to like this soup. He was saying the other day that he hadn't had much with white beans lately.

  5. i wonder how this would do with dried/rehydrated beans.

  6. Yum! Looks great!

  7. I make this soup all summer long with turkey sausage. I add zucchini & spinach if I have it around. It's so filling & yummy!!
