Originally developed with Tuscan Flavor Infused Broth, we’ve updated this recipe to use Swanson® Chicken Broth, garlic and Italian seasoning for the same delicious flavor as before.  Amazingly simple, this hearty and rustic Tuscan-style soup using kale, chicken sausage and white beans, is sure to impress.  Added bonus, it all cooks in one pot for super easy clean-up.

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $7.53

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound Italian-style chicken sausage or Italian-style turkey sausage, casing removed
  • 1 onion, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth or Chicken Broth or Organic Free-Range Chicken Broth
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 3 cups packed chopped kale (about 3 ounces)
  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) white cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat.  Add the sausage and cook until well browned, stirring often to separate meat.

  • Step 2

    Add the onion and garlic to the saucepot and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the wine to the saucepot and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the saucepot.  Cook for 2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the broth and Italian seasoning and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Stir in the kale and beans.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the kale is tender, stirring occasionally.  Season to taste.  Sprinkle with the parsley.  Serve topped with the cheese, if desired.

    I think if I make this recipe I will use spinach instead of kale.

    Great, tasty soup, very inexpensive to make and yet I would definitely serve this at a dinner party...I didn't have wine when I decided to make this but by adding a little boullion it was still great. I did add some italian diced tomatoes and it was a great idea. Definitely recommend this as an easy soup to make and freeze for later.

  • excellent use for ham stock

    sorry swanson's i see you wanted me to use your chicken broth and that probably would have been great too, but it was a perfect use for my ham stock. i soaked and boiled pinto instead of white beans and used hot italian style sausage. but a very good hearty soup for winter.

    I made the Tuscan White Bean Soup and I was mildly surprised as to how good it was. I want to make this again but now I can't find it. I went to 2 Safeways and 1 Raleys.
