White Bean Soup with Spicy Chorizo

Bookmark this soup for busy winter weeks.

It’s pretty much an all-star recipe that’s got every base covered.

First, it’s hearty and protein-rich thanks to chicken sausage (buy organic!) and white beans. Then, it’s filled with a wide variety and volume of nutrient-dense vegetables, including kale, butternut squash, and garlic.

Finally, while many soups take hours to simmer, this one’s ready in half an hour.
