Kale & White Bean Soup with Sausage | 10 Meals in an Hour | Freezer Cooking | Freezer Meals | Quick Soup Recipes

This simple, delicious, freezer-friendly soup recipe was inspired by the fresh kale, carrots, and parsley I harvested a few weeks ago, and it is JAM-PACKED with flavor! Both my kids and husband couldn’t get enough, and I know this is one I will be making all the time.

As an aside, I can’t even tell you how excited I am, after four years of unsuccessful attempts at gardening, to actually be growing things! (You can follow our garden progress on Instagram or by following hashtag #SoukupGarden)
