Black Bean and Kielbasa Soup Recipe

Kielbasa is a type of smoked sausage, a little spicy, but if you’re unable to find it, substitute regular smoked sausage. This black bean and kielbasa soup doesn’t make a big batch, so if you intend to feed a large crowd, please remember to double, triple or quadruple the recipe ingredients.

  2. This has been my favorite meal since I was a kid, and I’m a grandma now, so it’s been a LONG time to say the least. I’ve made it using water as well as using broth both with great results. I like lots of beans so I use a large bag of frozen. The thing I do to avoid mushy sausage is only add about 1/2 of it at first, sliced a little thinner than chunks. Then about 30-60 minutes before serving add the rest of the sausage to the pot so that it get heated through. That way you get all the flavor of the sausage in the beans & potatoes but you still have solid chunks. Sometimes I like mixing both smoked and polish kielbasa in the same pot.

  3. I love bean soups. This one sounds really good, I think we will give it a go (and none of us are allergic to any of the ingredients.)
