Sausage Minestrone Soup

Oh my gosh! This was maybe the best soup I made and so so easy! I adapted it from Fixate which is a cookbook/show that focuses on clean eating and correct portions! I was very pleased with how this came out and how filling it was!


  • Chicken sausage (remove from casing)
  • 3-4 carrots, chopped
  • 3-4 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 onion
  • 4 gloves of garlic, chopped
  • 6 cups of low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 lb of Swiss chard
  • 1 28 oz can whole peeled tomato
  • 1 can of canenneli beans 
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Olive oil or similar for sauté


  1. In a large pot, sauté onions, carrots, celery, and sausage in oil until sausage is almost cooked. Add garlic 
  2. Add vegetable broth and continue cooking over medium high heat
  3. Cut tomatoes and place in pot with liquid remaining in can
  4. Chop swish chard (remove stem) and add to pot
  5. Drain beans and add to soup
  6. Add salt & pepper for seasoning. Simmer for 15-20 minutes 
  7. Serve with Parmesan cheese if desired


  • I would definitely make this again and play around with vegetables
