Sausage, Beans & Greens Soup

Sausage, Bean & Chard Soup

Recipe Level: Creative | Recipe Speed: Average | Season: All | Type: Soup | Diet: Omnivore/GF/DF

The roasted vegetable stock you received in your share makes this recipe a snap. Are you a vegetarian? This soup is excellent without the sausage, too.

  • 1 container vegetable stock (you can always substitute your own stock, veggie, chicken, or any other kind!)

  • 1 package hot Italian sausage

  • 1 container white beans (if you don't have beans from your share, you can substitute any other cooked beans, of any color or type).

  • 1 bunch chard (you could also use kale, escarole, or nearly any other kind of braising green)

  • juice of 1 lemon

  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a medium pot, bring stock to a simmer.

  2. While the stock is heating, cut the casings from the sausages, and crumble the meat into the pot.

  3. Add the white beans to the pot.

  4. Strip the chard from its stems, rinse, and pull or cut into bite-sized pieces. When the stock has come to a a simmer, and the meat is cooked through, add the chard to the pot.

  5. Simmer until the chard is bright green and tender. When it's done, turn off the heat.

  6. Add the lemon juice, taste the broth, and season with salt and pepper to taste. If the soup isn't tangy enough you could add more lemon juice if you have it, or use a splash of vinegar.

Roasted Sweet Potato and Squash Coconut Curry Soup

Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Coconut Curry Soup

Make this recipe using any winter squash! Serve with a nice thick slice of Red Hen Baking Co. Bread.

Intervale Food Hub Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet potato

  • ½ large butternut squash

  • 1 small yellow onion

  • Optional toppings: Joe’s Kitchen Chermoula sauce. Butterworks Plain Yogurt,

Additional Ingredients:

  • 2+ cups of chicken broth or vegetable broth

  • 1 16 oz. can Coconut milk

  • 1 Tbsp Curry Powder

  • Salt and Pepper to taste.

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Peel and chop sweet potato and squash into cubes. Place on baking sheet with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until pieces are soft.

  3. Saute onions in a pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

  4. Once the veggies are cooked thoroughly, move to a blender and add coconut milk, chicken broth, and curry powder. Blend until smooth. If you have to blend in batches, add your coconut milk, broth, and curry powder in batches as well. We recommend starting with less broth - you can always add more to get your desired thickness, but it’s hard to thicken soup after it’s all blended!

  5. You can return the soup to the pot to reheat and help the flavors blend. Once the soup is warm, it is ready to serve. Freeze extra servings to enjoy later!
