How To Serve Kielbasa and Cannellini Bean Soup

This hearty and flavorful soup needs very little to make it a complete meal.  Here are a few ideas of things you can pair with this soup:

  • Crusty Bread or Baguette:  It’s perfect for soaking up those delicious juices and adding some extra bulk and texture to your soup.
  • Garlic Bread:  If you want a little more pizzazz.
  • Cornbread:  Try our Cornbread Muffins, Skillet Cornbread (made with 100% corn), or our Quinoa Cornbread.
  • Salad:  A simple green salad is a classic accompaniment.  You can serve it before or with your soup.

Can I Substitute Different Beans?

Absolutely!  Navy beans or Great Northern beans both make good substitutes though their textures a little different with cannellini beans being the creamiest.  Alternatively you can also use kidney or pinto beans, or a combination of beans.   Use what you have on hand.

Can I Freeze This Soup?

Yes, you can freeze creamy bean soup with kielbasa. To freeze this soup, first, let it cool completely. Then, store it in freezer-safe containers or resealable plastic bags. Leave some room at the top of the container or bag to allow for expansion as the soup freezes. Properly frozen creamy bean soup can last for 2-3 months in the freezer. When ready to enjoy the soup, let it thaw in the refrigerator before reheating.
