This soup is packed with nutrition from all the kale and protein packed cannellini beans (and the remaining veggies of course), then I love the depth of flavor the sausage adds. It gives all those healthy ingredients just what they need to make it perfect.

Even though it’s just a soup it is completely hearty and filling so you won’t need to add much more to your meal, if anything (although can you ever go wrong with a side of fresh bread and butter).


This is a recipe you’ll likely find yourself turning to time and time again. I know I’m going to!

Such a tasty easy to make soup recipe! Packed with flavorful sausage, creamy beans, and nutritious veggies.

Servings: 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 12 oz beef Polska Kiebasa Sausage , sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped carrots (about 3)
  • 1 1/3 cups chopped yellow onion (1 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped celery (2 stalks)
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 3 (14.5 oz cans) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary , crushed
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 6 oz kale , thick ribs removed, chopped (about 1 1/2 bunches. 5 oz if using pre-cut)
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • Shredded parmesan cheese , for serving


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until slightly browned, tossing occasionally, about 5 minutes. Remove sausage, while leaving oil in pan, and drain sausage on a plate lined with paper towels and set aside.
  2. Return pot with oil to medium heat, add carrots, onion, and celery and saute 3 minutes (while scraping bottom of pan to get the browned bits), add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. Stir in chicken broth, water, parsley, rosemary, oregano and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and allow to gently boil 10 minutes. Add kale and allow to boil 10 minutes longer until kale and veggies are tender. Stir in cooked sausage and cannellini beans (you can add more broth at this point to thin if desired). Serve warm, top each serving with parmesan cheese.

  • Jenny: This was so yummy! The only change I made was to add some crushed red pepper because my family loves heat in everything. December 17, 2018 at 6:14pm Reply

  • Flora Saperstein: Can I make this soup ahead of time and freeze it? October 30, 2018 at 3:59pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I haven’t tested but I’m guessing it should freeze well. November 5, 2018 at 9:46pm Reply

    • Jamie Cook: I make this regularly then freeze it as individual servings in zip lock bags. Reheats in the microwave perfect! January 14, 2019 at 10:36pm Reply

  • John Pritz: I add a whole white Onion with six cloves pierced into the Onion. When soup is finished, pull out the cloves and chop the onion and put back into the soup.
    The Cloves impart a special flavor to the soup. October 17, 2018 at 1:53pm Reply

  • Jes: Absolutely LOVE this recipe!! I’ve shared it with Alamo’s everyone and I just made it tonight!

    One thing I did struggle with was working through step 2. Definitely recomend breaking that step out into multiple steps for all of the distracted dyslexic cooks out there ;) it was a little hard to keep my place

    But again LOVE! Taking the leftovers with me to work because I’m so proud of my creation and it’s too good not to share! September 25, 2018 at 8:37pm Reply
