Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup Camellia Brand Cannellini Beans, rinsed and sorted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 – 1 ½ cups quinoa, uncooked
  • 2 ½ cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

  • 1 (12-ounce) package fully cooked Italian chicken sausage, sliced
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach or kale, chopped
  • Optional garnishes: shaved parmesan and chopped basil

  2. Drain, rinse, and add beans to a medium-sized pot. Cover with 3 to 4 cups of fresh water.
