Soup! Oh, how I love a delicious, warm, comforting bowl of SOUP. This is a bean soup recipe I adore. Well actually, this is a bean and sausage soup. Who doesn’t love the combination of beans and sausage?

This recipe is easy to put together. I use a package of 15 bean soup, ditching the seasoning packet. If you want you can always put together a combination of beans that you like. I just don’t make beans from scratch often enough for that to make sense.  Another thing I love about this soup is that it uses lean smoke turkey sausage. The brand I used was 95% fat free, has 100 calories for 1/3 of the entire package, and has 9 grams of protein. This soup comes together as a healthy meal for dinner.
