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.

    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

      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.
