Aside from the fact that soup tastes good and is good for you, it’s incredibly easy to make!  Using staples that you have on hand, you can mix and/or match the ingredients listed below!  Enjoy!

12 oz. Italian sausage, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 bay leaf

2 quarts chicken stock (no sugar added)

1 pound free-range chicken breast, boneless, skinless and cubed

1 cup cremini mushrooms

1 bunch kale, stem removed and chopped

1 (15 oz.) can Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
