Sausage 15-Bean Soup Recipe

Easy 15-Bean Soup with hearty sausage and vegetables for a filling meal! This inexpensive recipe is perfect for winter.


– 1 Tbsp avocado oil – 1 yellow onion chopped – 4 cloves garlic minced – 10 ounces pre-cooked sausage links chopped or sliced* – 2 large carrots chopped – 1 red bell pepper chopped – 1 package 15-bean soup mix – 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth – 1 bay leaf – 1 tsp dried parsley – 1 tsp dried oregano – 1 tsp paprika – ¼ tsp black pepper to taste


Leave beans in water overnight or 6 hours. Drain and rinse beans in a colander with cool water to remove debris. Keep beans in colander until use.

Step 1

Medium-high heat avocado oil in a large thick-bottomed Dutch oven or stock pot. Sauté chopped onion for 10 minutes until brown, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Stir in minced garlic and chopped sausage. Cook for 5 minutes until garlic is fragrant and sausage sweats.

Step 3

Add chopped carrots, bell pepper, drained beans, chicken broth, bay leaf, dried parsley, oregano, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper. Cover and boil pot. 

Step 4

Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until beans are tender, 1.5–2 hours. Cook beans for two hours or more to tenderize.

Step 5

Big bowls of sausage bean soup with crusty bread or cornbread are comforting!
