I really like soup in the winter - I like it so well that I had a little soup business last year to force me to make it once a week. Even though Bev can’t eat this on her diet, I really wanted to try the Bean and Sausage Soup posted by Chef Dennis over at More Than A Mountfull. You know I’m a recipe follower and I went by the recipe except for a couple of things. Bev has managed to train me a little and when the recipe called for the veggies in a fine dice, as much of a knife guy as I am, I used the food processor and it took about 10 seconds – maybe I’m not too old of a dog after all. I like my soup to be pretty hearty and after the 30 minute simmer, I decided it could use another can of drained beans. My homemade chicken stock was delicious in the soup, but I also thought it needed a little more flavor, so I added a tsp of dried Italian spice. My shopper, Bev, couldn’t find escarole so we used a bunch of kale, which worked perfectly.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
