Chorizo Great Northern Bean Soup

by Salt Cellar & Sugar Pot

With the cold rainy weather we have been having the last few days here in Oregon, nothing sounds nicer than to sit down with a warm cup of soup. One of our most favorite things during the winter season is the fact it is also soup season! But not only is it soup season, we have had the honor of celebrating National Bean Day (Jan 6).

We posted our Southwest Avocado Salad which featured Black Beans, and to continue with our celebration we have unanimously decided to extend Bean Day for three additional days! We have added one of the best beans of all to our soup! The Great Northern Bean! 👏👏👏

Maybe every day should be Bean Day. What do you think? Leave a comment below.

But apart from the beans, our soup has so much more to offer. Chorizo, onions, corn, kale! This soup is filled with hearty goodness and a pinch of spice. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!

While your broth is simmering. In a separate pan sauté onions till almost clear. Add chorizo sausage to onions. Partially cook the sausage as it will cook the remainder of the way in the soup.

At the 15 minute mark, add Great Northern beans, golden corn, sweet basil and parsley.  Continue to simmer for another 15minutes, stirring regularly.  Lastly pour in the heavy cream. Turn off the burner and let stand for 10 minutes.

Serve with shallots and sour cream if desired. Enjoy!
