Why I Love This Recipe

This hearty soup is packed with fiber-rich canned beans and the tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which may help prevent certain cancers, and in vitamin C, which helps your body use the iron in canned beans. Using canned products makes preparing this dish a snap!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
8 ounces reduced-fat, smoked turkey sausage, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) unsalted, stewed tomatoes, undrained
2 cans (15 ounces each) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons minced thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves Ground black pepper, to taste


Directions

Preparation:


Heat oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened. Add sausage and cook for 5 minutes, until sausage is lightly browned. Add tomatoes, 1 can beans, 1 can broth and thyme.


Heat to simmering and simmer for 10 minutes.


Combine remaining beans and broth in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.


Stir the purée into soup and bring to a boil; simmer for 5 minutes, then reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes. Season with black pepper.
