Spicy Sausage and Chickpea Soup

Take the chill off a fall evening with a bowl of this hearty soup. Spicy Italian pork sausage gives this soup its kick, but you can substitute sweet Italian sausage. 25 minutes and you are done.

1/4 cup olive oil
6 garlic cloves, sliced
1 pound spicy Italian pork sausage, casings removed (or sweet Italian sausage)
1 cup chopped yellow onion (about 1 onion)
1/2 cup chopped celery (about 2 stalks)
1/2 cup chopped carrots (about 2 large carrots)
4 cups chicken broth
1 (15-oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 (15-oz.) can chickpeas (garbanzos), drained
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups chopped Lacinato kale (about 3 1/2 oz.) or spinach

1. Cook oil and garlic in a large saucepan over medium until garlic begins to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove and discard garlic; reserve 3 tablespoons of the garlic oil.

2. Increase heat to medium-high. Add sausage to pan; cook, stirring often, until browned and crumbled, about 6 minutes. Remove sausage from pan; drain on paper towels. Add onion, celery, and carrots to pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes, chickpeas, and pepper; stir in sausage. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 20 minutes. Stir in kale; cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Drizzle each serving with 1/2 tablespoon reserved garlic oil.


Thank you for the feature.

This soup sounds perfect for cold winter days. I will substitute spinach for the kale I think!

That looks like such a filling dish. Each one of the main ingredients alone would be more than enough to fill up a plate but the two together are dynamite!
