Opal® Apple Recipes


Opal®, Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes
Ingredients

1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pinch red pepper flakes
4 cups chicken broth
2 large opal® apples, peeled cored and diced
1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
1 bay leaf
1 (2 inch) piece parmesan rind (optional)
1 bunch kale or spinach or swiss chard, coarsely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
lemon juice to taste

Directions:

Cook the sausage in a large sauce pan over medium heat and set aside, about 8 minutes, draining any grease from the pan.

Add the oil and onion and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the broth, sausage, apples, beans, oregano, bay leaf and parmesan rind, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the apples are just tender, about 10-15 minutes.

Add the kale and simmer until it wilts, about 1-2 minutes.

Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice, remove from heat, remove bay leaf and parmesan rind and serve while hot.

Option: Puree some of the apples and beans for a creamy broth.
