I know! Soup in warm weather, I must be nuts. I truly could eat soup everyday any time of the year.

What started out as an Italian Sausage & White Bean Soup ended up as this. I "thought" I had Italian Sausage in the freezer but I didn't. I had plenty of bulk breakfast sausage and I still wanted soup. It turned out satifying and very tasty.
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Breakfast Sausage and White Bean Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak beans using directions on package.

    This is what I did: rinse beans, place in a 6 qt dutch oven and cover with 6 cups of water. Add salt. Over a medium heat bring to a boil, boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let them soak for 1 hour; drain.
  2. SOUP:
    In skillet, brown sausage and onion; drian off excess grease.
  3. Add beans, sausage, carrots, oregano and garlic to 6 qt dutch oven; cover with 4 cups chicken broth. Bring to boil over medium heat. Cover and reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check periodically and add a little water if necesary. Taste test and add salt and pepper to taste if desired.
  4. Add tomatoes and chopped cabbage the last 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. NOTE: Because I used salt in the soak and the sausage I used was salty, I only added a small amount of salt in the soup. Taste test and add seasonings to your taste.
