Smoked Sausage, White Bean and Spinach Soup

It's definitely soup season and one of my family's favorite soups is this Smoked Sausage, White Bean and Spinach Soup. Will warm you right up!

Soup is one of my go-to foods when I feel that I need to reset and recharge my eating habits. It’s filling, it’s healthy (if you make it healthy, of course) and it’s usually really easy to pull together any day of the week. One of my favorite soups to make is this Smoked Sausage, White Bean and Spinach Soup.

This soup is filled with staple ingredients that I almost always have in my pantry and fridge. Beans and basic veggies like carrots, celery and onions are really essential ingredients to almost all of my soups so I try to always have them on hand. I love using this chicken apple sausage and usually have a few packages in the freezer (it takes no time at all to defrost!). It really does make for a perfect weeknight soup and leftovers are great for lunch the next day.

I’m all about leftovers for lunch the next day.

Hope you are all having a great week!

    I love this soup so much, Aggie! Simplicity at it’s best. I like to add more soups to my menu at this time of year, too. It’s an easy way to add veggies and beans to your diet and so comforting with all the wet and very cold weather we are having here in California. Happy New Year!!!

    Wish you had included nutritional information for people with Type 2 diabetes to know the amount and breakdown of carbs.  Will have to read the individual ingredient packages.  Thanks though.  Looks good and my husband wants to try.
