This delicious Dutch Oven White Bean, Spicy Sausage and Kale Soup is pure comfort food for the fall and winter seasons.
It’s turned chilly here and that means flavorful comfort food like this cannellini bean, spicy sausage and kale soup that will warm me up! I love to pull out my dutch oven and make something that will make the house smell yummy as well as make enough for leftovers.

This soup is it! It’s zesty and delicious and I love that it’s made in a single pot for easy clean up. It freezes well so you can make larger batches for even easier weekday meals. If you don’t like spicy sausage, just substitute it for a milder sausage. I like the spicy, though, because it helps flavor the cannellini beans. You can always add more herbs, too, for a really zesty flavor.
