15 bean stoup!

Today i made a soup/stew concoction that came out pretty good! I started out with a recipe and then decided i wasnt going to follow it at all and just did my own thing instead! I've been trying to implement more greens into our diet, keep us all full, and stay under my budget.

15 Bean Stoup

1lb ground italian sausage
1lb bag 15 bean soup 
a big ole bunch of washed and chopped mustard greens 
2 medium onions
lots of garlic 
chicken broth or bullion
salt and pepper 

pick through your beans and remove any debris 
put them in a 4qt or larger pot and cover with water
heat on high until rapidly boiling
boil for 2 minutes then turn the burner off and let them sit for an hour
drain and rinse beans well. 

heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil to medium high
add sausage, onion and galic and cook until sausage is browned
add about 4 cups of chicken broth and 4 cups of water to de-glaze the pot
bring to a boil, add beans and reduce heat to medium
simmer with the lid tilted for about 2 hours or until your beans are as tender as you like them 
add the mustard greens after 1 hour you want them to wilt but not turn to mush
Stir occasionally and add more broth if liquid is needed.
