16 Bean, Leek, and Kielbasa Soup ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking and Food Blog

“I used to help my granddaddy make sausage. He would mix it up in a cleaned-out washtub with his hands, no gloves. Man, if we did anything like that today, they would jack the jail up and throw us under it.”Jimmy Dean

Don’t worry, we would never use Jimmy Dean sausages. We made this soup with yummy vegan Kielbasa, of course!

This hearty and satisfying stew was made from 16 types of dried beans (available at grocery stores as “16 Bean Soup Mix”), carrots, celery, onions, red wine, thyme, celery seed, Creole seasoning, garlic, leeks, green beans, beer, store-bought vegan kielbasa, and more! The recipe includes instructions for how to make this on the stove or in a slow cooker. We used our slow cooker and this turned out wonderfully. This is a great lunch recipe that goes really well with a vegan grilled cheese sandwich! The recipe is from Betty Goes Vegan by Annie & Dan Shannon, page 70.

Kielbasa Facts: Kielbasa is a type of Polish sausage that is also known as kołbasa, klobasa, kobasa, kolbasi, kovbasa, kobasi, and kubasa.

  1. Hello hello hello beloved HSD! I am so very glad you checked in with me and I hope you are doing great. :) I have really missed you! I have put Vegetate on hold for now while I focus on my other photography projects, which I am posting on my photography blog, Studio Candelabra: http://studiocandelabra.com/. I wanted to let you know but I didn’t want to be presumptuous in assuming that you would be interested in my other work. There are still lots of quotes and photographs but it’s a bit different that the work that I did on Vegetate. I tackle various photography challenges and post about them weekly or bi-weekly, and I’m having a really fun time with it! I do plan to start posting on Vegetate at some point but I’ve been too busy to maintain 2 blogs these days. I am so grateful to you for your support for Vegetate, as well as for the great friendship we’ve developed over the years. You’re the best! XO
