Sausage Apple Soup
It’s been snowy in Idaho and a hot, savory, bowl of soup just hits the spot! We love Sausage Apple Soup, served up in a big bowl with a little fresh parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and some crusty sourdough bread or with a grilled cheese sandwich. Low-fat, low-carb, made with Italian turkey sausage, onion, peppers, kidney beans, and apples, it’s unique and healthy.
Sausage Apple Soup
I need to give credit to my sister Kim, who found Sausage Apple Soup, (I think it was named something else and she’s always called it that), in a Light & Tasty Magazine many years ago. It takes just over an hour to make and we love to dip bread in the flavorful broth.
Slip the skins on the sausage and break it up in a large Dutch oven. Cook the sausage and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Add the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, vinegar, green pepper, red pepper, brown sugar, salt, ground mustard, sage, chili powder, and pepper.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chopped apples and kidney beans and simmer for 15 more minutes. Serve hot in a pretty soup bowl. Makes 2 quarts, or 8 servings.
- 1 pound turkey Italian sausage links, casings removed
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 3 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) crushed tomatoes, undrained
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons chopped green pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped sweet red pepper
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
- ½ teaspoon ground mustard

I loved your Sausage Apple Soup. My family really enjoyed it and it was simple for me to make.
Thank your sister, Kim, for me, too!!
Thanks for making my day and getting right on it! I’ll be sure to let Kim know you love her yummy soup.
I have never tried Sausage Apple Soup but think I would enjoy it. Looking forward to making it for my crew.
It is definitely worth a try! The sausage is so good in the soup!
Wow. This looks good! I’m not a fan of spiciness but I would give this a try! 🙂
You can definitely tone down the spiciness!
Looks nice but as i dont eat Turkey may be i can replace it with some other protein
Yes, you could definitely use a different type of sausage and it would be great!
Wow! Looks delicious and mouth watering!! Thank you for sharing xx
It looks really yummy… I think this dish would go well with rice (haha sorry, I am from a country where rice is a staple food LOL)
It looks really flavorful and i think the Apple will give a great balance to the taste of this dish… oh and what makes it so much better is the fact that it is one fulfilling yet guilt free dish to try on!
Thanks for sharing
This soup looks lovely.It’s my first time to encounter a soup with apple.I’ll share this with my sister who loves to cook.
It was my first time adding apple to soup, too, but you will love it!
I love sausages but I haven’t tried cooking them with fruit. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
The texture is great with the fruit and adds a depth of flavor to the soup.
You can do that? I like Italian Sausage and I have always eaten it as it is or with pasta.
Sure! It tastes amazing!
This is very yummy!
What an interesting combination of ingredients. I’m not a big fan of that kind of combinations of tastes but this looks absolutely mouth-watering!
