Tuscan White Bean & Sausage Stew

Tuscan White Bean & Sausage Stew

This is a dish I have been thinking about making for a little while now.  I am obsessed in love with these Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage Vegan Sausages and I’ve been thinking about ways to use them.  Pairing them with white beans and spinach sounded perfect.  And it was.

This dish is quick to come together, easy to make, and most of the ingredients are probably already in your pantry.  Perfect for a week night meal for your family, but also pretty enough to serve to company.  Pair it with a salad, crusty bread and a nice wine for a complete meal.
