This Italian white bean soup is one of my favorites when I’ m looking for a hearty soup. The cannellini beans and the sausage make this a high protein meal with about 35g per serving as well as high in fiber. It’s also a great gluten free soup. You can even turn it into a vegan or vegetarian white bean soup by simply swapping the turkey sausage out for a plant based sausage and using vegetable stock in place of chicken stock.

For this soup I used my homemade turkey sausage. But if you’re on a time hunch, feel free to use your preferred sausage.
