So I have made a Bowewares and Bean Soup for my school family tomorrow. It is a little on the spicy side, full of flavor and loaded with lots of jam-packed veggies. Please use Kielbasa instead if you don't have moose.
This is what you need:
4 1/2 cups ham broth (look for Better Than Broth in your grocery isle)
1 29 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 each 14 oz can rinsed and drained:
Great Northern Beans
2 medium bell peppers, chopped
2 onions, chopped
1 cup celery ribs, chopped
2 cups zucchini, halved and sliced
1 lb. sliced white mushrooms
2 tsp. chicken bouilllion
5 garlic cloves, diced
2 1/2 tsp. chipotle chile powder
4 tsp. dried basil
4 tsp. Italian Seasoning
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
4 bay leaves
3/4 lb. fully cooked sausage (Grill, cool and slice into large slices).
Combine all ingredients except the sausage in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour. Add cooked sausage and heat through. Serve with some whole wheat sourdough bread.
This is a really yummy and fortifying soup!
