Spicy Sausage and Garbanzo Bean Soup

Posted by Brandy C

Summer is starting to drift away and fall will be here before we know it. This warm and comforting soup is perfect for cool late summer evening┬áNot only is this soup packed full of flavor it’s also made in the slow cooker. Hello easy!

I used ShopRite organic beef stock for this recipe and I loved the richness it brought to the soup. Plus I love that it’s organic. It can be hard finding a good quality organic stock that does not cost too much.

Spicy Sausage and Garbanzo Bean Soup

Yield 6 servings


1 pound spicy Italian sausage, removed from casing

1/2 pound dried garbanzo beans

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

4 ribs of celery, chopped

3 carrots, peeled and small diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

6 cups ShopRite Organic Beef Stock

4 sprigs fresh thyme

1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 bunch kale, chopped

Grated Parmesan cheese


In a large skillet add sausage and cook until sausage is browned.

Add sausage to a large 6 quart slow cooker and add in garbanzo beans, onion, celery, carrots, garlic beef stock and thyme.

Cook on low for 6 hours and then add in tomatoes and chopped kale. Let the mixture cook for another 30 minutes until the kale is soft.

Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese if desired.
