Lima Bean & Kielbasa Soup

Submitted by: WARMSPRINGDAY

Introduction

I did not have dried limas, so substituted a mixture of dried beans with excellent results. This recipe is a keeper for us. I would like to try it with ham or smoked sausage for a more smoky flavor. Also, I had a turnip in the fridge I needed to use and threw it in for good measure. Could be an added ingredient if you like. Very tasty.

Ingredients

    1 package (16 ounce) dried lima beans, sorted and rinsed
    1 pound kielbasa sausage, cut into 1/4 inch slices
    1 cup carrots, cut into 1/4 inch slices
    1 cup celery, cut into 1/4 inch slices
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    6 cups water
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, no salt added, undrained

Directions

Mix all ingredients except tomatoes in 5 - 6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on high heat setting 10 - 12 hours or until beans are tender. (Note: although the recipe does not call for it, I pre-soaked my beans.)

Stir in tomatoes. Cover and cook on high heat setting until heated through.

Makes approximately 10 1.5 cup servings.
