A spicy, comforting soup full of sausage and veggies to warm you up this winter. This can also be made in either your instant pot or slow cooker (with instructions for both!). This soup is also free of: gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanuts and tree nuts and is top-8-free!
Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 2 stalks celery diced (my son can't do this, but it'd be great in it, so I included it)
  • 1 carrot diced
  • One 15-oz can diced tomatoes, do not drain
  • 1 15-oz can white beans, do not drain
  • 4.5 cups vegetable or chicken broth (I use homemade, if you use store bought, look for a wheat free version)
  • 1 tsp parsley, dried
Instructions
  1. INSTANT POT DIRECTIONS:
  2. Turn the instant pot to saute and add the oil. Add the onions and cook until soft.
  3. Next, add the sausage and cook until browned.
  4. Turn the saute function off, and add the rest of the ingredients--being sure to add put the entire cans of beans and tomatoes--liquid and all.
  5. Next, lock the lid and turn it to "sealing". Hit soup button. Allow it to cook until the soup function is done. Release the steam, and serve. Garnish with additional parsley if desired.
  6. SLOW COOKER DIRECTIONS:
  7. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft.
  8. Next, add the sausage and cook until browned. Drain, if so desired.
  9. Add the sausage and onion mixture, as well as the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker--being sure to add put the entire cans of beans and tomatoes--liquid and all. Set on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-6 hours. Cook until the potatoes are soft. When ready to serve, garnish with additional parsley if so desired.
