White Bean and Chicken Sausage Soup

I love hearty soups in the wintertime, especially soups that are packed with veggies, but still filling and satisfying. This White Bean and Chicken Sausage Soup is exactly that – with robust flavor from chicken sausage cooked with bay leaves, oregano, and thyme, and fibrous veggies like spinach, spiralized carrots, every bite is delicious and satisfying.

This soup saves well for leftovers, just reheat it in a pot over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. I like to add a little extra salt when I reheat my soups, so you may want to taste before serving. This quick and easy soup is meant to be a healthy recipe for your busy weeknights, and if you want to step it up a notch with some dairy, a little bit of shredded Parmesan cheese will go a long way.

I served this gluten free soup with some toasted crusty bread to absorb all the amazing flavors in the broth. This soup works as a lunch or dinner, it’s just light and just hearty enough to work as both. And if you’re vegetarian, you could omit the chicken sausage (or use your favorite veggie sausage replacement) and just have this be a vegetable white bean soup.

I can’t wait to see everyone make this soup on social – make sure to use the hashtag #inspiralized or tag us @inspiralized so we can reshare our favorites.

  • I was away in Arizona and couldn’t wait to get home to start cooking once I saw the recipe posted. I watched you make it on Instagram and have been anxiously awaiting the recipe. I had all of the ingredients at home already, sub kale. As soon as I got in the door tonight from the airport I started cooking. I’m so glad I did. This dish is delicious and so filling.
  • Can't wait to make this! It's cold and rainy here in Northern Calif so we've been on a soup kick lately. Did you use chicken Italian sausage? So many different kinds to choose from these days. Thanks for all you do to keep us eating healthy!
  • This does sound really good, in the UK we are very limited with chicken sausages and to be honest the quality of the majority of them is not so great. I guess we could always mince our own chicken or use a pork alternative, or just use small chunks of chicken. I think this is one I will definitely have to try, thank you
