Kielbasa and Butter Bean Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mark Kovach

A hearty soup for those cold days. Use either Polish Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage. Kielbasa gives a sweet taste to the soup while Smoked sausage gives a great background for the beans. It's delish either way.

My DH just LOVED this soup! T make it a little richer, I did add one can of chicken broth instead of 1/2 of the water and since I had only one can of butter beans, I used that and subbed other white beans instead. My kielbasa was a well-seasoned one, so the soup turned out very flavorful. The next day my DH ate all the left-overs himself. Thanks Mark for posting this hearty soup.
