Rustic One Pot White Bean and Sausage Soup (My Cheat's Tuscan Sausage Soup)
On a cold rainy day, this White Bean and Sausage Soup is just what the doctor ordered.
I came up with this recipe a few years ago whilst enjoying the solitary life in a small town in Tasmania. Well, as solitary as you can get when you are accompanied by two toddlers….
So the opposite really, but let’s just pretend shall we.
Getting up in the morning and venturing out into the chilly sea air for some sticks to get the fire going was just delightful. We had one night where the weather was so bad it turned the power off, and so we ended up cooking baked beans and toast over the fire and eating by candlelight.
Nothing Better Than Coming Home To A Pot Of Pre-Made Comforting Soup
Now don't get me wrong, I am pretty much as far from the outdoorsy type as you can get, so this was definitely a novelty for me.
In fact, I think I have been camping once in my whole life, I was twenty years old, and I cried…
We have this pot and love it for making soups and stews. We received it as a wedding present a million years ago and it is still as perfect now as it was then.
After a long day, I love nothing better than coming home to a big pot of this Rustic One Pot White Bean and Sausage Soup already prepared and ready to be slurped down.
It's one you can always guarantee the kids will eat without any hassle.
