13 Bean Soup with Kielbasa

As we head into the chilly days of autumn, nothing is more comforting than a steaming bowl of hearty 13 bean soup. This recipe was not tested by Bob's Red Mill. Gluten Free*, High Fiber, Lactose Free, Soy Free.

  • 2 cups 13 Bean Soup Mix
  • 12 cups Water
  • 2 Chorizo Sausages
  • 1 lb Smoked Kielbasa, chopped
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped
  • 2 Celery Stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium Carrot, sliced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp dried Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 8 cups low-sodium Chicken Broth
  • 28 oz can Diced Tomatoes with Juice
  • 4 oz can Chopped Green Chilies


Step 1

Rinse and pick over Bob’s Red Mill 13 Bean Soup Mix. Place beans in a large soup pot with water. Bring water to a boil, and boil steadily for 5 minutes. Remove pot from the direct heat. Cover, and let stand for one hour.

Step 2

While the beans stand in the covered pot, take out the Chorizo sausage. Heat a small frying pan on medium, and remove the meat from the casings into the frying pan. Fry the sausage until it is just brown. Blot off any excess fat with a paper towel, and set aside.**

Step 3

In a bowl, along with sausage, add kielbasa, onion, celery, carrot, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and pepper.

Step 4

When the beans are finished, drain thoroughly, and add back to pot along with the kielbasa and other contents of the bowl.

Step 5

Add chicken broth.

Stir well, bring to a boil, then turn down to very low heat and gently simmer for 2 ½ hours.

Step 6

Add tomatoes with the juice, and the chilies.

Bring the soup back up to a boil, then reduce and gently simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 7

Taste the soup, and season with salt, to taste (this will vary depending on the sodium content of the broth and meats).

Serves 12 - 16.


*This recipe is wheat-free but may still contain gluten.
**If you would prefer to skip the step of browning the chorizo, simply use a fully smoked sausage and slice it up instead.

Great recipe! I added some fresh dill and used Polish kielbasa instead. Rich and hearty and filling!
