sausage, kale, and bean soup (crock pot)

  • 1/2 lb sausage (i used chorizo chicken sausage–i think sweet italian would be even better, though)
  • 4 cups broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup dried white beans (i used navy beans)
  • 1/2 cup dried lima beans
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3-4 small potatoes
  • 1 large bunch kale
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (i used 1/2 C uncooked but rinsed)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • additional water if needed

brown the garlic, onion, and sausage in a pan.  transfer the garlic, onion, and sausage.  add the broth, bay leaf, beans, potatoes, and quinoa– cover, and set to high. set for about 3 hours on high, or probably about 8 hours on low. then, add chopped kale and set for another 30 minutes on high.
