Black Bean and Sausage Soup

Submitted by: TODD717
Black Bean and Sausage Soup

Introduction

This hearty soup is super easy to prepare but packed with flavor. Change up the flavor by swapping in your favorite sausage. This hearty soup is super easy to prepare but packed with flavor. Change up the flavor by swapping in your favorite sausage.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 large carrot, peeled or scrubbed, chopped
    1 stalk of celery, sliced
    2 large cloves of garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1 medium potato, peeled, diced
    2 cups beef or chicken broth
    1 28 oz tin, diced tomatoes
    4-6 oz lean kielbasa sausage, cubed
    1 19oz tin black beans, or your favorite canned beans


Directions

1. Heat large pot with low fat cooking spray. Add onion, carrot and celery; cook and stir over medium heat until vegetables begin to soften.

2. Stir in garlic, oregano, potato, broth and tomatoes; heat to boiling. Stir in Kielbasa. Cover and simmer gently for at least 1/2 hour to blend flavours.

3. Drain and rinse beans. Add to soup. Heat until hot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with crusty bread. (Even better the next day)


** We love this soup. You can prepare it ahead for a gathering and instead of simmering for 1/2 hour, put it in your crockpot on low and add the beans. By the time you are ready to eat (try to make it at least a half an hour) it will be ready to go. Great for potluck as it only gets better the longer it sits.

    Awesome! I left out the potatoes because they raise the glycemic index count. Substituted chicken for keilbasa, added 1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed in cold water( a slurry)and it thickened great and was fantastic! It will be tommorrows lunch too. - 7/19/09

    I made this a few nights ago and it was AMAZING!!! And it's great that it makes loads of leftovers and they taste even better the next day! I will definitely be making this one again. Thanks for the great recipe!
    Tip: Use more than 1 potato and type of bean & no salt, the kielbasa is salty enough - 10/24/08

    Yum! I doubled the recipe and froze some for later.
    I did it in a crock pot, but had to cook it on high for 3 hrs for the potatoes and carrots to cook thoroughly. - 11/24/08

    I left out the carrot, celery and potato. Doubled the beans, kielbasa, and broth. The tomatoes I added had green chilies in them and I threw in a can of corn. It was awesome and very spicy. Will definetly make again. - 2/22/09

    This was good and flavorful. The recommended cooking times were a little off. Could have let it simmer a lot longer to be sure the potatoes were softer. Might be good over rice too. - 7/14/08

    Wonderful soup! Left out the celery and carrots. Added a can of Rotel tomatoes which gave it enough spice. Also added some fresh corn and used turkey smoked sausage. Hubby and I decided this was a keeper! - 11/9/10

    Im always looking for a new soup recipe. I did change a couple things. I added mexican zuccini, yellow squash, bell peper, and garbanzo and kidney beans to make this hearty soup. Thanks - 12/3/10

    Added an extra potato since canned black beans usually come in only 15 oz cans. Used a turkey smoked sausage and added chili powder and a bit of crushed red pepper to make up for the zest the kielbasa would offer. The sausage soaked the spices up great! Topped with a dollop of light sour cream. - 11/21/10

    Made this tonight using my slow cooker. I put all but the sausage (used turkey) and beans in cooker. I added them at the last half hour of cooking along with 1 tsp. of cajun seasong. Serve it with a salad and bread sticks. My husband loved it...will make again. - 9/11/10

    I used dried black beans rather than canned. 4 cups of chicken broth and water. I simmered for several hours to allow the beans to cook and the soup to thicken. I was very good and filling. - 2/26/11
