When the weather is colder, I love to have homemade soups and stews. There is something comforting about them as the heat warms our bodies and souls. This easy to make White Bean and Spicy Sausage Soup is one such dish.
Easy White Bean and Spicy Sausage Soup
This soup is really delicious. It can be made in a single pot for easy cleanup.
Additionally, it freezes well so that you can make larger batches for even easier weekday meals. Just double the recipe and use a larger pot then freeze off the leftovers.

Preparing to Make Easy White Bean and Spicy Sausage Soup
As always, prepare your ingredients first so it is a dump, stir and simmer dish.
BRK Alpha Pressure Cooker 9.5Q
The beauty of this soup is that you can make it all in one pot. However, not just any pot will do! You need a thick bottomed pot for this dish.
My personal favorite is the BRK pressure pots. An alloy heat-conducting disk sealed into the stainless steel base of every pot spreads heat uniformly.
You can use them as regular pots OR you can speed up the cooking process with pressure. The pot comes with both a pressure lid and one for normal cooking.
Additionally, if you want to save some money, you can cook your beans in the BRK instead of buying canned beans! I make up a large batch of beans and then save them in freezer bags.
Norpro 144 Heat DiffuserEven if you have a thick bottomed pot, a diffuser can make sure that nothing burns onto the bottom.
After all, who wants their wonderful concoction to end up leaving a scorched taste?
While I initially bought my diffuser plate to make things like rice, I find it helpful for anything simmering on the stove.
The only downside to this particular option is that my handle has come apart after several years of use. But, given the low cost to buy one, I am fine with that.

When it comes time to serve your soup, a ladle is a must.
Have you ever had a child knock the ladle INTO the soup getting the handle covered? Or, maybe they have slopped soup all over the counter trying to get the ladle into a holder.
These Loch Ness Monster ladles will tickle young kids in their whimsical colors.
Additionally, they have feet on them so they can stand on the stove top instead of being perched somewhere.
