Beans, Greens and Sausage Soup

For this hearty soup, we play with the flavors of our Organics® Spinach and Feta Sausage—stirring in big handfuls of baby spinach and cooking it until silky but still bright green and sprinkling crumbles of briny feta over the finished soup.



  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the beans and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Ladle about 2 cups of the bean mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Stir back into the soup. Add the sausage and simmer until heated through.
  4. Just before serving, stir the spinach into the soup and cook until wilted and tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. To serve, divide the soup among bowls and top with crumbled feta. Serve crushed red pepper flakes on the side.
