Brimming with andouille sausage, Swiss chard and white beans, this hearty soup is the perfect cool-weather dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, boil the wine until reduced to 1/2 cup, 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a soup pot over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the sausage and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let cool, then cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices.
  3. In the same pot over medium-low heat, cook the onion, celery, carrot and leek, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more. Add the reduced wine, the stock and water, increase the heat to medium-high and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the sausage, white beans and chard and cook until the chard wilts, 5 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, and garnish with the cheese. Serve immediately.

This is a nice, tasty soup. The only change I made was to use a 1/2 cup white wine straight from the bottle rather than reduce a full cup down to 1/2 cup. I'll make this again.

Delicious soup! Well-seasoned, spicy and hearty, it was quick to throw together as well. My husband loved it and requests it often. Thank you so much for a go to recipe when we have a hankering for a great soup.
