So dinner is soup - a version of beans and greens that I found on recipezaar.com a while back. It's quick and easy, and as I discovered tonight, adapts pretty well to variation. (The link is to the recipe as it was written, this version is what I made tonight:
Beans and Greens Soup with Sausage
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1 package smoked turkey sausage, cut into chunks (I used Aidell's Portobello mushroom)
3/4 carton low sodium, lite chicken broth
1 can pinto beans
1 can white beans
1 package baby spinach
- Sautee the garlic and onion in a big ole pot until translucent (not burned like I did tonight)
- Add the sausage and cook until the edges start to curl.
- Add both cans of beans and mush it up with your potato masher (there is one kind of beans that I sometimes get where the beans are very soft and squishy, so I would skip the mashing part)
- Let it come to a boil, then add the whole package of spinach. Stir the leaves in so they wilt.
