Black Bean & Turkey Sausage Soup

Whoa! We decided this is one of our new favorite soups. It's actually a slow-cooker recipe from SkinnyMom, but (shockingly) I didn't make it in the crock pot. That was only because I didn't prep it the night before. But it was very easy to prep that night and get ready. I added a few things to it, and it was delicious. It was also yummy for lunch the next day.

14 oz lean smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1-inch slices
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3 - 15 oz cans black beans, rinsed + drained
1 c onion, diced
1 c celery, diced
1 c green bell pepper, diced
2 jalapenos, diced
4 c reduced-sodium beef broth
8 oz can tomato sauce1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1½ tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp black pepper
½ tsp cayenne pepper
2 bay leaves
toppings: fresh cilantro and light sour cream

In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat, and brown the turkey sausage for 3-4 minutes. Add in onion, celery, green bell pepper, jalapenos, and garlic. Saute about 5 more minutes. Add your broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, black beans, and seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes. Taste and add salt if necessary. Top with light sour cream & cilantro. Yum!
