White and Black Bean Sausage Soup

It’s the season for soup, right? This is a quick and easy recipe with deliciously seasoned results!

Ingredients
Cooking oilDSC01881
3 C diced mirepoix mix (celery, carrots, onions – can find this in the freezer section of the grocery store if you’re lucky)
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 C broth (beef, chicken or veggie, your choice)DSC01889
2 red potatoes, cut into ½ inch cubes
½ pound sausage (whatever variety – I used meatless meat), casings removed
1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsedDSC01886
1 15oz can white beans (any variety), drained and rinsed
3 Tbsp pesto

Direction
In a large pot, heat the cooking oil over medium heat. Add the mirepoix mix and garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes.DSC01892

Add the broth and potatoes. Increase heat to high until soup comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.

While the soup simmers, cook the sausage in a skillet over medium heat, about 5-7 minutes or until all the pink is gone. Drain well.

Add the sausage, beans and pesto to the soup. Simmer another 7-10 minutes until heated through.

Enjoy!
