Kielbasa Winter Stew

This is a great little stew that allows me to sneak some kale into my family’s routine without getting any objections. It’s also pretty inexpensive to make.



1 lb. turkey kielbasa

8 cloves garlic (smashed)

4 cups chicken broth

2 cups diced tomatoes

2 cans white beans (any kind)

6 sprigs thyme

1 small bunch kale

1/2 bunch spinach

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

Olive oil


  1. Heat 1-2 tbsp. olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Cut the kielbasa into pieces and cook it in the pot for 3-5 minutes, until most of it is browned.

3. Add the smashed garlic cloves to the pot and saute for two minutes.

4. Add the diced tomatoes (undrained), the chicken broth, the thyme, salt and garlic salt to the pot and bring to a boil.

5. Rinse the spinach and kale and tear the leaves into small pieces.

6. Add the torn spinach and kale to the pot, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

7. Drain and rinse the beans and fold into the pot, then heat through.

Top with some grated Parmesan and serve with some warm, crusty bread, like a garlic French bread or something like that. It’s absolutely delicious! Thanks for stopping by, check out more new recipes here:
