Jump to Recipe

Amazing. Delicious. Hearty. Comforting. I could go on and on about how incredible this soup is. I’ve been making this for years and my family loves it every time. This is one of those soups you never get tired of and even a bit sad when leftovers are gone. It’s just that good!

What I find so impressive about this recipe is it’s made in 30 minutes or less, but the flavor makes you think you had to spend hours cooking it. Turkey smoked sausage, thinly sliced red potatoes, beans, veggies and herbs give the broth so much richness, you will be slurping every last morsel from your bowl. I love to serve this soup with crusty bread, or soft rolls, but my absolute favorite, is simple saltine crackers with butter. Gosh, I am ready to make this again! 😍

Let’s eat!🤍

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Turkey smoked sausage, sliced about 1/4 inch I use the Hillshire brand
  • 1/2 medium size yellow onion, chopped fine
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced thin
  • 3 cups red potatoes, unpeeled, sliced in moon shapes I used about 4-5 medium size red potatoes
  • 1 can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh, chopped Italian parsley
  • 2 cups kale, chopped (optional) spinach can be used also


Prepare all your ingredients before the cooking process

  • Heat a stock pot, or Dutch oven to medium high heat and add olive oil. Add the sausage and sauté until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in potatoes, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper. Add chicken stock, beans and bay leaf. Stir to combine and bring to a boil, turn heat down to medium high and cook until potatoes are tender, about 7-8 minutes. Turn heat down to medium low and add kale and wilt down for 2-3 minutes. I like my greens with a little bite but if you like a softer texture, cook them longer. Remove the bay leaf. Serve with crusty bread, rolls, or buttered saltines.


Sausage Substitutes- The flavor from the sausage in this recipe is really what makes this soup. You can use any kind of smoked or kielbasa sausage, however it will increase the calories and fat. 
Greens- Mild greens work best in this soup. Spinach, kale, and green chard all work well.
