White Bean, Cabbage, and Chorizo Soup

We love Field Roast sausage, and often buy 12-packs of apple, Italian, and Mexican Chipotle sausage for pool party bbqs. The chipotle is too spicy to eat straight, but is great in a soup! A quick google search brought up a Spanish-style soup that uses chorizo, along with beans and cabbage, more of my favorite things. Easy and delicious - and it hits you with a slow POW at the end. I like to add both green and purple cabbage -- it's so healthy and both last a long time in the crisper, great for soups and stir fries anytime.

4 Chipotle FieldRoast sausages, sliced into medallions
3-4 cups cooked (or canned) white beans
2 T oil (I use canola)
1 large onion, diced
5-6 cups veggie broth
4+ cups green and/or purple cabbage, chopped
(optional) 2 cups kale, chopped
1-2 T white vinegar

4 cloves garlic, diced
1 can diced tomato - or large tomato, diced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
(optional) pinch saffron threads

Saute the onion in oil for 4 minutes…

Shuchi's Salsa Verde

Shuchi made this delicious salsa for a pool party last weekend. It's fantastic and super easy to make. This one will become a pool party staple!

1 bunch green (spring) onions (3-4 with green stems/leaves) 2-3 tomatoes, sliced cilantro - 1 cup (or 1 small bunch) 1 lime
Tortilla chips (for serving) - I like the white chips at Trader Joes that have the aztec symbol
Instructions Add green onions, tomatoes, and cilantro in a food processor. Pulse for a few minutes till finely chopped. Add salt and squeeze lime. Serve with chips!
