Here’s a tip for all family cooks out there- it’s still ok to eat soup during the Spring!

Soups are a great way to use the leftover beans you’ve got sitting in your pantry or fridge from the long winter months. It’s easy to throw together all of the ingredients taking up space in your kitchen with your favorite type of Randall Beans and create a delicious meal.

This Garbanzo bean dish is silky smooth and packed with a deep flavor. Incorporating a classic chicken broth into the red sauce, this soup combines the heartiness of kale and sausage with the filling base of Garbanzo beans. After mixing the liquid base, we like to tear the kale into really small pieces and add it in with the sausage bits. This allows the leafy greens to slurp down easily and be less noticeable with picky eaters.

Soup this colorful, spicy and full of flavor is sure to please. Don’t forget to serve warm and with plenty of yummy bread!

This dish has a bit of an international flavor combining the garbanzo bean which is often associated with middle eastern dishes and the chorizo sausage which is more of a southwestern flavor.
