A Winter Stew That Will Keep You Warm

Hey all!

Thought I dropped off the face of the Earth, right?  Well, not really if you follow me on Instagram (@BeautyandtheGreek).  I've come back to blogging land to share the EASIEST and tastiest winter stew...like ever.  It is adapted from this recipe, but I added spices and onions and swapped a few ingredients.  In the end, it turned out delicious. I served it with some bread and olive oil and roasted garlic.  Click here for my garlic roasting tutorial.

This recipe is a little sodium heavy with the broth and the chicken sausage, but... unless you have heart problems, suck it up and drink some more water.  One sodium heavy stew won't kill ya. :)



So here it is:


Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or large soup pot over medium heat.  Add onions and sausage. make sure you brown the sausage and flip it at least once.  Near the end, throw in the garlic.


Rinse and drain beans.  Add beans, tomatoes with juices and broth.  Bring to a boil.


Add spinach and lower heat to a simmer.  I know it's super annoying how I don't give measurements for spices.  If I had to guess, I'd say I used a teaspoon or two of pepper and paprika and a tablespoon or two of oregano.  But, just taste as you go.  Serve with French bread.  The crustier, the better. Extra points if you garnish with a little fresh grated parmesan.


I'll have some pregnancy and nursery updates for you soon.  I've actually been itching to get back to blogging for a while, so I'll see you soon!
