Monday Meal Plan: Tuscan Bean Soup

So ...

I had a severe case of pregnancy brain this past week.  despite 3 trips to the grocery store within 2 days I somehow still managed to forget ingredients that I needed for last week's meal plan.  As a result, we ended up ordering pizza one night and the tikka masala I had planed was pushed to this week. 

Oh well.

The meal plan for this week includes: 

Tuscan Bean Soup

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Italian sausages, chopped 
2-3 organic red potatoes, diced
32 oz. organic vegetable or chicken broth
1 bunch organic kale, washed and chopped
14 oz. cooked cannelini beans 
1 tsp oregano
a dash of red pepper flakes 

1. Heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add chopped sausage and let it render out some fat and start to brown up. Toss in the onion and garlic and stir to coat with the oil.  Cook until the onions are soft and translucent. 
2. Add the potatoes and broth and season with oregano and paper flakes.  Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are cooked through, 10 - 15 minutes depending on how small you chopped them
3. Add the beans and kale and cook for 5 minutes. 
4. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with warm rustic bread.  

That's it!  Super simple!
