  • Summary

    After gorgeous weather here in Michigan last week, I'm now looking at gray skies and feeling chilly winds...Time for soup season! This one uses some collards, tomatoes, parsley and basil from my garden, probably the last remnants of the season. Full of chick peas and a little sausage it'll stick to your ribs and fill your belly....

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups cooked chick peas (alternatively use 2 14 to 15 ounce cans, drained and rinsed)
    • 2 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
    • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
    • 2 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic
    • 3 Italian sausages (hot or mild) casings removed ( about 12 ounces)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 medium fresh tomatoes, seeded and diced
    • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
