I like bean soup, but this white bean soup is my husband’s absolute favorite.
We haven’t had it for a while, so when I received a formal request, I was happy to make it.
I usually don’t add too much to my white bean soup, but this time I had this idea of putting a few things.
And one of them was my V-sausage.
Other than sausage, in this soup are potatoes, corn, and kale.
Oh, and a little crushed red pepper on top.
I made a big batch, and I can take a little break from cooking for a few days (or not).
Usually the problem is the opposite, because I come up with too many ideas and make too many things for just the two of us!
This soup was delicious!!
I absolutely loved it.
I’m so glad that my husband suggested bean soup, because I really liked using beans to thicken the soup instead of using flour-fat based roux.
By the way, the lovely soup bowl you see in this post is one of my recent purchases.
This is Ms. Ree’s brand, and I fell in love with their colorful and rustic look.
Her TV cooking show, The Pioneer Woman, has been one of my favorite cooking shows for a few years.
Although I no longer eat meat, I still enjoy the show; well, she is married to a cattle rancher, so her food is definitely NOT vegan (lol).
I watch her show because I like her food “ideas” for sure, but mostly I’m really interested in the country life she lives.
I’m definitely a city girl, and I will probably never live in country, but I always like “imagining” a country life.
I guess I enjoy vicariously experiencing a country life through her show.
Happy Saturday everyone!
