Slow-Cook Tuscan Sausage And Bean Soup



Another hit in our home! I’ve been plenty occupied with my home and businesses and love these slow-cooked recipes. If you prep the night before all you need to do is place everything in the Crock Pot and head out.

G loved the turkey kielbasa so much she’d pick it out with her hands to eat as she spooned the rest of the soup into her mouth. The hubby’s tummy was happy with this hearty soup, or really, “stoup.”

Again, no cream in this one, so it freezes marvelously! I would know, I’ve got one serving frozen to have for lunch this week!

Reminds me of a healthy chili of sorts. First time we had kale outside of our daily Green Juice. Very tasty… I think so. I used low sodium organic beans for this stoup and may use lean Hot Italian Turkey Sausage next time.

Give this one a try, take some for lunch and let me know how you made it yours! Share by posting below.
