Easy Recipes: 15 Bean Soup

Sharing is caring!

My friend Kim is always telling me about these soup recipes she makes and she adds sausage to them. as in linked sausages or polish sausages.

Summer is coming to an end and I am craving Fall. Crisp weather. Leaves changing. Soup for dinner.

I was at Sprouts about a month ago and they have beans you can buy in bulk. The 15 bean soup medley was on sale, so I bought two cups worth.

Then a few weeks later I was at Trader Joe’s and grabbed some Spicy Chicken Sausage that we taste tested. I knew this would be perfect to add to the soup!

Here is how I made this super simple soup on the stove top. While you’re here make sure you check out all of my easy recipes that are perfect as we get into back to school mode and ready for Fall!

15 bean soup easy recipes


  • 2 cups dry 15 bean soup, washed
  • 2 (32 oz) containers of chicken stock
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 regular side carrots or 10-12 baby carrots, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic (I use the jarred stuff)
  • 4-6 Spicy Chicken Sausage links, casing removed and cut the links into slices
  • 1 cup of Kale (I use the frozen kind from Trader Joe’s)

In a large soup pot add the garlic, onions, carrots and chicken sausage.

Add the two cups of clean beans to the pot.

Add in the 64 oz of chicken stock.

Bring it to a boil and continue to boil for 20-30 minutes.

Move to low and cover.

Continue to cook for 1 hour to an hour a half or until the beans are done. Most of the beans in this mixture are pretty small, so they cook quickly.

The last 15 minutes of cooking, add the chopped frozen Kale.

It cooks super fast and this is a great way to add some extra nutrients.

And you’re done.

We served this with a slice or cornbread.

My little kids did want to eat it over rice, so I steamed a pot of rice and drained the soup before I poured it over their rice. I am trying to watch my carbs, so I just ate a small slice of cornbread and a big bowl of the soup.
