Italian White Bean, Cabbage, and Sausage Soup
This hearty soup is full of flavor and it’s filled with far more vegetables and meat than broth. Best of all, this soup comes together in under 30 minutes.
Servings: 8 -10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 pound hot or regular breakfast sausage
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 small cabbage sliced into bite size pieces, about 4 cups worth
  • 1 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked great northern beans or 1 15 ounce can, drained
  • 6 cups chicken broth store-bought or homemade
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
Instructions
  1. Cook and crumble the sausage in a large pot, over medium high heat. When the sausage has almost finished browning, add the onions. Cook for a few more minutes, until the sausage has browned and the onions are tender. Add the cabbage, beans, tomatoes, broth, and spices. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes to soften the cabbage. Enjoy!
Notes

A small amount of sausage in a soup like this provides a great deal of flavor. I don’t always add salt to recipes that include sausage, so be sure to taste and adjust the seasonings as you like.
