Kale, Sausage, Cannellini Bean Soup

Picture of Kale, Sausage, Cannellini Bean Soup
Serves 4 to 6

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb Italian bulk sausage, casings removed (the kind that is not precooked.  I used spicy for a bit of heat, but you can use sweet if you don’t want the heat at all)
1 large onion, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup white wine
2 quarts chicken stock (low sodium if you can get it)
1 bunch of kale, thick stems removed, chopped (OR use Trader Joe’s 10 oz bag of pre chopped kale)
15 oz can cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
Basil, finely chopped
Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shreded

Heat a large pot over medium high heat.  Add sausages and using a wooden spoon, break up into small pieces.  Cook until sausages begin to brown, about 4 minutes.  Add onions and garlic and continue to cook, stirring often, until onions are translucent about 3 minutes.  Add wine and cook for an additional minute.  Add all chicken stock and kale.  Bring soup to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.  Add beans and simmer until kale is dark green and tender, another 3 minutes.

Serve hot with a sprinkle of cheese and basil.

This is my very favorite soup, but I much prefer turnip greens to kale. Yu Choy is also awesome.
Oh that soup looks delicious! Sounds like it doesn't take too long to make too!
