Andouille Chicken Sausage and Veggie Rice Pilaf

On this busy weeknight, I pulled together an easy dinner with items I had in the pantry.  I picked up these andouille sausages at Trader Joe’s for grilling and possible use in a batch of gumbo or Spanish stew.  The chicken version cuts your calories and saturated fat pretty much in half.

It’s soup time!

Sausage, Kale, and cannellini bean soup!

My hubby and I love this soup but for very different reasons. He loves it because it involves real (not turkey/soy) sausage. I love it because it involves a giant bunch of kale and it is super easy to make.

Here’s what you need:

Italian sausage
Chicken stock
A big bunch of kale
A can of cannellini beans
2 cloves of garlic
1 medium onion

After you brown the meat, throw in the chopped onion and garlic…

While the onions are becoming translucent, roughly chop your bunch of kale!

Toss the kale onto of the onions/garlic/meat and put the lid on for it to steam. About 10 minutes.

Pour in your stock.

Let it all simmer for 15 minutes or so and add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with some shredded parmesan and a hunk of crusty bread. Yum!!!

I am officially exhausted after my day and 2 mi on the treadmill so I am going to enjoy this and go to bed!
