Sausage and Butter Bean Soup

This Sausage and Butter Bean Soup has been in my soup rotation since having it over 10 years ago! It’s SO good and full of flavor.

If you haven’t tried butter beans before, this soup is a fabulous way to first have them.


– hot Italian sausage – sweet Italian sausage – extra virgin olive oil – small onion – 2 large garlic cloves – low-sodium chicken stock – diced tomatoes

Total Prep Time: 30mins.

No. of Servings: 5

NOTE: Butter Beans are milder in flavor, and even have a buttery taste after cooking them. They are so tender that they almost melt in your mouth.

In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat cook the sausage until browned and cooked through; about 5-8 minutes.


While the sausage cooks, in a large stockpot over medium heat add the onion, and sauté until opaque and the edges start to brown; about 5 minutes.


Add the garlic and cook until fragrant; 30-60 seconds. Then add the chicken stock, diced tomatoes, butter beans, black beans, and carrots.


Increase heat to high and bring to a low boil; add the sausage, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.


Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with shredded cheese (optional).
