Hearty stew in just 15 minutes sounds too good to be true but it isn’t!  I tried this one myself, but used lean moose sausage.  It came out really good!  I’d definitely make it again! Recipe adapted from Real Simple

Total time
Recipe type: Main
Yield: 4 servings
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (can omit if using a fattier sausage)
  • 1 13-ounce package turkey or chicken sausage, sliced, or removed from casing.( I also use moose sausage on occasion)
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 19-ounce can white beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 14.5-ounce can low-sodium chicken broth or 2 cups chicken stock (sub for water if you wish)
  • 1  14.5-ounce can low sodium or salt free diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1  bunch kale, torn
  • ¼  teaspoon black pepper
  1. Heat oil in a large pot or dutch oven (if using) over medium heat.
  2. Add the sausage and cook until browned.
  3. Add the garlic, cook a couple minutes (don't want it to burn). Add beans, broth, & tomatoes. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Meanwhile, chop kale (be sure to remove stem) and add to the pot.  Just wilt it down for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with pepper if needed and serve!
