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

    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.

    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

    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

    Great soup.... I used 2 cups of broth and add two more cups of water. I did not have celery so I replaced it with cabbage! Great way to make good use of sausages (leftover in my case). Thanks for posting! Will make this again! - 3/22/12

    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

I also used Italian seasoning instead of oregano and threw it all in the crock pot (after sauting the carrots, celery and onion in a little EVOO). Will make again. - 1/20/15

  • I guess I'm in the minority here as I thought it would be more flavorful based on the feedback. I think next time I'd add more kielbasa for flavor, and either use a smaller potato or eliminate altogether. and possibly add corn and/or rotel instead of plain tomatoes. It does make A LOT Of soup. - 11/19/13

  • Made this tonight but I subbed Kidney beans for the black beans as my Husband will not eat black beans. It was great. My husband who told me all day he would order a pizza for dinner ate it happily. It was filling. I made a spinach and romaine salad to accompany the soup. - 10/17/13
