Tuscan Bean, Kale and Lean Turkey Sausage Soup


Healthy Tuscan bean, kale, and lean turkey sausage soup in the slow cooker…perfect for those cold days when you want to put minimal effort into making a meal.  I highly recommend you try this recipe on a cold and lazy Sunday afternoon.

Ensure you purchase lean turkey sausage (no casing) to keep the fat content down.  Also, use low sodium chicken broth and canned beans to reduce the sodium. You may go a step further and rinse your beans very well to remove even more.  Prep time is minimal. You’ll have the soup ingredients in the slow cooker within 15 minutes. Set it and forget it!

Enjoy this tasty and hearty wintertime soup!
