Sausage and White Bean Soup - Stolen from Girlichef...shhhhh

Girlichef turned me on to this recipe and I am so glad I tried it.

Even though this is more appropriate for a winter meal…I have enjoyed it despite these warm Florida temperatures. We bring soup for lunch just about every day and what better way to fill up (AND have a change from my usual chicken and noodles soup) by having a hearty sausage and white bean based soup….rib-sticking stuff.

Girlichef’s recipe is HERE

I made some modifications and here are my results………….

I browned three fat links of fresh sausage (cut on the bias after being in the freezer for a couple hours. Makes the cutting easier) then tipped in some chopped red onion and 3 cloves of chopped garlic.



Pour in a can of Rotel tomatoes…I like the kind with lime. Let it simmer……the add cannellini beans juice and all. Toss in some rosemary and thyme.



I always keep homemade chicken broth in the freezer so…defrost a small tub of golden herbed broth. Using roughly a cup and half this simmered for a half hour on low heat.


Girlichef used pasta but I had some leftover baked potato from the mini baked potatoes I prepared earlier. Why waste? So into the soup they went.

Brilliantly...I forgot to take a snap of an actual bowl of the soup....so surf over to Girlichef's site to get a gander of the finished product. Looked just like hers...I promise.

Ooh, I didn't realize Ro-Tel made tomatoes with lime. I love anything with lime: guacamole, margaritas, rum & Coke . . .

Janel, these are hot tomatoes! Makes a great addition to soup or whatever recipe you toss them in but they have a kick!

Oh yeah...I am loving margaritas...

You definitely got my attention when you said bean soup. I am a total bean fan and this sounds delicious. I'm not one to eat seasonally, so this sounds delicious to me anytime of year.

What caught my eye here was the Rotel tomatoes! We don't get those up here and they look really cool! Wow. Next time I go cross border shopping, I'll have to be on the lookout for those because they look really good!

Marie - My feelings exactly! Soup is a year round thing for our household.

Kim - I agree. Hey, I hope you aren't experiencing any of that flooding. Been thinking about you.

WC - Oh definitely grab some rotel when you cross the border. Can't wait to see what you make with rotel.

Girlichef - Great recipe..can't believe I was such a dumbass and didn't get a photo of the final result. It was so good we just ate!
