This hearty soup recipe is made with spicy Italian sausage, white beans, sweet potatoes and kale. Perfect for a busy weeknight dinner recipe!
PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 30 minutes
TOTAL: 40 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 3 Italian sausage links (casings removed sweet or spicy)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 2 medium carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 8 cups Low Sodium Organic Chicken Broth
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 15 ounce Cannellini Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 4 cups torn kale
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • shaved parmesan cheese (to serve optional)


  • Heat a large soup pot over medium-high and spray with cooking spray. Cook sausage until golden brown, stirring frequently, about 8-9 minutes. Remove sausage from pan and set aside.
  • To the same pan with the sausage drippings, add the onions and carrots. Cook until translucent, about 6-7 minutes.
  • Stir in garlic and oregano and heat for another 30 seconds until fragrant.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and return cooked sausage to the pan. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring entire pot to a boil then add in the sweet potatoes and beans. Return to a boil then reduce to simmer. Heat until potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Right before serving, stir in the kale and cook until bright green, about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve in large soup bowls with shaved parmesan cheese if you wish.

  1. How convenient is THAT to have the order all ready and brought to your car! I don’t have a Kroger nearby, but we do have Ralphs (same company, I believe), and I do hope they add that feature for Ralphs stores, too! Pinning and sharing your delicious looking soup. YUM!
