Recipe type: soup
Serves: 6 servings
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 package organic mild Italian sausage (I use Applegate), sliced
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 14-oz can crushed fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans white beans or garbanzo beans
  • 1 5-oz bag baby spinach (or other green) or 8 oz frozen chopped greens
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes (optional - leave out if making for young kids)
  1. Heat a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat.
  2. Drizzle oil in the pan and add chicken sausage slices. Cook 3-4 min or until browned then remove to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Pour the other Tbsp oil to the pan then add the onion and cook for 4-5 minutes or until softened.
  4. Add the thyme and wine (if using) and cook 1-2 more min.
  5. Add the tomatoes, beans, and cooked sausage back to the pot and cook until simmering.
  6. At the very end, stir in the greens and cook until wilted.
  7. Season with salt & pepper to taste (I don't add any additional) and red pepper flakes if desired.
  8. Serve however you like!
