Sausage and White Bean Soup

Do you remember the ham and bean soup that was really popular growing up? This soup is a play on that and with some veggies added, it’s healthy-ish and filling. It’s creamy and so comforting. You can use whatever veggies you have in your fridge. I used onion, red and orange bell peppers, garlic and zucchini. This 30-minute dinner works great for meal prepping.

White beans are packed with nutrients, especially fiber and protein. You could remove the kielbasa sausage and make this a vegetarian dish and it be just as filling. The power of a white bean!
