I made this hearty filling & tasty soup the other day, & made Texas Style Rainbow Corn Bread to go with it. They were perfect companions for each other we loved them both so much.

Many of you know how much I love veggies, & I am forever looking for new ways to incorporate them into my meals. This was a great idea, the crinkle cut carrots, the corn bread with all of the veggies. So satisfying on a cool late September evening. This soup is so satisfying & filling, plus it is so colorful & meaty from all of the Smoked Turkey legs that were added.
You will enjoy this hearty & comforting soup.

How to Make HEARTY NAVY BEAN & SPINACH SOUP

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pick through beans, and wash. Presoak over night to save cooking time. Add beans & bay leaves to a large pot and cover with water, adding about 2-4 inches above beans in pot, as the water will evaporate during cooking.
  • 2Allow beans to cook for at least and hour or longer before adding in the Smoked Turkey legs. Also add in the chopped onions and minced garlic. Stir periodically as needed, and add additional water or chicken stock if desired and as needed.
  • 3Once you have added in the turkey legs cook until tender another hour & half or so, or as desired. When meat is tender, remove with a slotted spoon, and remove all of the fine bones, the larger bones and the outer skin, then add back into pot, and continue to cook. Add the spices, taste first before adding the steak seasoning.
  • 4Next add in the frozen carrots, and allow to come back to a boil and cook about 15, minutes.
  • 5Add in the spinach, and continue to cook until spinach is as desired. Taste and add additional seasoning if desired.
  • 6Serve with your favorite Bread. I made Texas Style Rainbow Corn Bread, it was so tasty and delicious.
