Directions

Ingredients

In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, sauté onion and carrot until onion is softened and carrot is just crisp-tender.

Add broth, tomatoes and juice, cannellini beans, garlic, fennel, and thyme. Boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add kale, vegetarian sausage, and salt and pepper. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, or until sausage is heated through.

Serve topped with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, if you’d like.
