I’ve been looking for a broth-y bean soup. So often, bean soups end up being pureed or served chili- style. Don’t get me wrong - I love thick bean soups; I just wanted something new. Inspired by a rainy day and the chance to eat in by the fire, I tried my hand at a Smokey Sausage and White Bean Soup. It was substantial and hearty, while the tasty broth warmed us from the inside. This soup invites dipping from warm crusty bread, and at the privacy of your own table, refined sipping from the soup bowl…just don’t tell Miss Manners I said so.
In other news, I just got my copy of Love Soup, by Anna Thomas, a James Beard award-winning cookbook for recipes with a healthy focus. Lots of yummy soups in my future. Check it out!
