This White Bean Soup with Turkey Italian Sausage, Zucchini, and Basil is loaded with flavor, and this amazing soup is gluten-free, dairy-free, and South Beach Diet Phase One.
Over the weekend I had my annual soup party, where I make lots of different soups and invite friends and family over to eat soup and catch up on news! Some other people brought amazing soups this year as well, and a lovely time was had by all. This year's party was partly to show people my finally-completed playroom project where I finished the basement in my new house into a kids playroom, and I promise to take some photos of that soon to share on the blog.
But today let's talk about this White Bean Soup with Turkey Italian Sausage, Zucchini, and Basil. When I picked out some favorite soups to make for the party, I decided this one really needed better photos, so I took some pictures as I was making it. That means this is a double batch of soup, so keep that in mind when you look at the photos.
There are a few ways you can vary this soup with equally good results, but please, please, please use dried white beans that have been soaked overnight and not canned beans. That's going to make a huge difference in the flavor of the soup.
