Healthy, Hearty Bean Soup Recipe

Healthy, Hearty Bean Soup Recipe

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

With El Nino paying us a visit over the next few weeks, it would be nice to turn up the fire on a simmering pot of soup to take the chill off. Here is a quick, delicious and easy soup you can serve alone or paired with corn bread for a gluten free comfort food meal.

Bean Soup

Bean Soup

Ingredients – serves 6

1 (15 oz) can of your favorite beans
8 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 lb of your favorite spicy lean sausage (like kielbasa), sliced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1/4 head of cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons balsamic or red wine vinegar


Heat the oil in a large saucepan or stockpot over medium heat. Add the onions and carrots and cook for 5 minutes until they start to soften and brown. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the sausage and cook until brown, about 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste, stir well and cook for an additional 1 minute. Add the beans along with 8 cups of water, the potatoes, cabbage, and the can of tomatoes. Stir together well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add the vinegar and seasoning to taste and cook for an additional 1 minute.

Serve piping hot. Enjoy!
