Hearty Sausage, Bean and Vegetable Soup
It's a hearty, warming, filling meal in a bowl and full of nutritious ingredients. The best part is it also economical and quick to make. Ticks all round!
Slice and dice up all your vegetables.
In a saucepan, heat your oil and sauté your onion and fennel, till soften.
Add in your crushed garlic and lightly fry.
Once your onion, fennel and garlic are lightly cooked, add in your chicken stock and tomato paste. Stir well and bring to the boil.
Add in all vegetables, except your sliver beet or kale.
Simmer for 15 minutes till tender.
Grab your sausages, remove the casing and add in small pieces of sausage to your soup mix. It will look like little meatballs.
Add in your well drained and rinsed tin of cannellini beans. Cook for a further few minutes, then add in your sliver beet/kale for another 3-5minutes.
Season if required.
Serve! It's that simple.
