This Sausage & Kidney Bean Soup with butternut squash and kale is a favorite for cold weather!
Brrr. It has been below freezing the last two days – a high of 25F. That is not typical for NJ in December. Last year we had a 70 degree day in December (also not typical, made me worry about the polar bears), but it is normally above 30 in December. Makes me dread what’s to come in February, when it is actually supposed to be cold.
I haven’t been blogging much because with everything going on in Syria and all over it feels wrong to be all like “la dee da, try this fabulous recipe!” so I haven’t done much… but I figured everyone could use a good soup recipe when it’s this cold. I came up with this Sausage & Kidney Bean Soup recipe for Randall Beans earlier this year, and even though I called it a Fall recipe because of the delicious butternut squash and kale, it is a group soup anytime we need a little comfort food.
I love pairing beans with sausage for that awesome spicy and earthy combination, and butternut squash always adds a lovely touch of sweetness to any dish. Give this Sausage & Kidney Bean Soup a try next time you are looking for a recipe that is hot and delicious that everyone will love. It takes only 30 minutes from start to finish, and makes a great meal with a nice thick slice of bread. Stay warm everyone!
