Savory Bean and Sausage Soup

Submitted by: AMMONS_GIRL
Savory Bean and Sausage Soup

Introduction

This soup smells wonderful and the beans make it very filling. Try using different types of beans for variety. Lentils work well in there too. You could even omit the turkey sausage to make it vegetarian or just to cut the calories. This soup smells wonderful and the beans make it very filling.

  • Made this tonight, however, substituted beans for 1/2 bag of 18 beans . Only had an 8oz can of tomato sauce, so I added that plus about 16 oz water. Lastly added 3/4 buillion cube and also a little bit of cabbage. Had to use what we had and it came out AWESOME!! The hubby LOVED it! - 6/4/09

  • I made this in my crock pot today and it was so easy! I went to the store and when I got home I walked in the door and it smelled so good I had to try a small bowl! It was very good.
    I did add a small can of green chiles but othewise followed the recipe.
    Thanks! - 5/29/09
