Now that it’s started to get a bit cooler outside, it’s perfect soup weather. Soup is great because you can make a big pot of it and eat it all week long with no fuss. This soup is low-fat, nutritious, filling and ever so tasty. It has a bold, smokey flavor from the smoked turkey kielbasa that goes perfectly with the cannellini beans and collard greens.

~Serves 6.

Ingredients:

  • 1 qt fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 28-oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15-oz can cannellini beans
  • 1 12-oz pre-cooked smoked turkey kielbasa, diced (I used Trader Joe’s brand which is gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • ~4 large handfuls of chopped collard greens
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt/black pepper

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large pot on medium-high heat and add in the minced garlic. Stir the garlic around until it’s lightly browned and then add in the celery, onion, carrots and kielbasa. Cook the mixture, stirring around often, for about 5 minutes on high heat. Pour in the diced tomatoes and chicken broth allow the liquid to come to a low boil. Add in the collard greens and cannellini beans and season with a dash of salt and black pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for about an hour.
