I had bought some Kale and didn't like it raw for a salad, so I froze it...today along with some fresh spinach I threw this delicious, healthy pot of yumminess together...I really love how it turned out...I'll be sending this to work with the hubby...he will love it.

How to Make Kale & Spinach Bean Pot - Delish!


  1. In a dutch oven, add some olive oil and turn heat to medium high. Add the sausage and cook until no longer pink, chopping as it cooks.
  2. Once sausage is cooked add more oil if needed and add the onion. Continue cooking until translucent. Stirring occasionally.
  3. Next, add the kale, spinach and garlic. Continue cooking a few more minutes until spinach and kale are beginning to wilt.
  4. Now, add the tomatoes, juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, sugar. Stir to combine...place lid on pot and simmer for roughly 20 minutes.
  5. Stir in the beans and continue cooking until heated through. I smashed up some of the beans to thicken the sauce some. Stir in balsamic if using...Taste to adjust any seasonings.
  6. Enjoy with a nice crusty piece of bread or salad...
