What's for Dinner ... one skillet white bean and sausage stew

This looks fabulous and I love white beans. This recipe is from a new blog I found called Eat.Drink.Smile ... make sure you rinse the beans well.

One skillet white bean and sausage stew

Yields 6 servings. Adapted from Bon Appetit.

2 Tbsp olive oil

13 oz turkey smoked sausage, sliced into 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick medallions

1 large onion, sliced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

2 sprigs of fresh thyme

2 15-oz cans of Great Northern beans, rinsed

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Kosher salt

Freshly ground pepper

Smoked paprika

5 oz baby spinach (about 10 cups)

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage medallions and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 15 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add onion, garlic, and thyme sprigs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5-8 minutes. Add beans and broth and cook, crushing a few beans with the back of a spoon to thicken sauce, until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Add spinach by handfuls and cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes.

Fold sausage into stew. Divide stew among bowls and serve.
