Kale and White Bean Soup with Mediterranean Chicken Sausage

Serves 8
Time 1 hr
This spicy kale and bean soup gets a hearty boost from homemade chicken sausage. Made with sun-dried tomatoes and our Mediterranean Healthy Earth Seasonings (look for this in the meat department), the sausage is unique and satisfying, plus an easy baked technique makes this dish weeknight-friendly.
Ingredients
  • Sausage
  • 1 pound ground chicken, preferably a mix of light and dark meat
  • 1 tablespoon Organic Healthy Earth Seasonings Mediterranean Earth Blend
  • 4 sun-dried tomato halves (not packed in oil), soaked in warm water to soften, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Soup
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Organic Healthy Earth Seasonings Mediterranean Earth Blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes
  • 2 (15.0-ounce) cans no-salt-added cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15.0-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 bunch kale, tough stems removed and leaves chopped
Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F. 

Combine chicken, seasoning blend, rehydrated tomatoes, parsley and salt in a large bowl and mix well. 

Evenly spread the sausage mixture onto a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 25 minutes. 

Set aside to cool slightly and then crumble into bite-size pieces.

Meanwhile, heat a large soup pot over medium heat. 

Add onion and garlic, and cook, stirring frequently until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. 

Add seasoning blend and chile flakes, and toast until fragrant, about 2 minutes. 

Add beans, tomatoes, 4 cups water and broth. 

Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes. 

Add kale and crumbled sausage mixture, and cook for another 10 minutes to heat through. Serve immediately.
