Hi Butterflies! I was craving a hearty home-cooked meal and came across a cannellini bean soup recipe on Pinterest which inspired me to create something new. I love the taste of spinach and tomatoes together but I had never cooked with cannellini beans before so I was kind of iffy about the results but it was yummy!
White Bean, Spinach & Beef Sausage
1 pack of smoked beef sausage (cut into chunks or rounds, whichever you prefer)
1 pack of frozen spinach
3 cans of cannellini beans
1 can of petite diced tomatoes
2 cups of vegetable broth
3 garlic cloves
1/2 of a small onion
On medium heat, with a teaspoon of butter or olive oil, sauté onion + garlic for like 2-3 minutes then add sausage and cook until browned, add veggie broth/tomatoes/beans, cook on med-hi for 15-20 and season to taste with black pepper, cayenne pepper or your favorite hot-sauce ( I prefer the original Louisiana Hot Sauce). Or, just toss everything in the slow cooker and cook on low for no more than 2-3 hours for the sake of your beans and spinach. Enjoy!
