15 bean soup mix (any brand)
3 qt water (12 cups)
1 large onion, chopped
2 15oz cans diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
2 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste)
1.5 tablespoons salt
14oz package of turkey smoked sausage, cubed
Serve 1C of soup with 1/2 C brown rice for a filling meal and complete protein for just 200 calories!!
After an hour stir in all remaining ingredients except turkey sausage. Simmer for another 1.5 hours, or until beans are very tender and falling apart.
Meanwhile, sautee sausage cubes in a dry skillet until browning around the edges. Stir into soup before serving. (This step keeps the softer turkey sausage a bit firmer. If you don't care, just throw the meat in with all the other ingredients for the final simmer)
Serving Size: Makes 12 cups
Number of Servings: 12
