Smart and Svelte food

It has been ages since I've been here.

Got lost on facebook for awhile, playing games that let me rule my virtual world badly.

Instead, I'm going back to my online roots with a recipe. Here is a simple soup to help me stay smart and svelte. Well, I hope it helps.

Sausage, Beet and White Bean Soup

2 large onion, diced
2 clove garlic, minced
3 carrots, diced
1/2 head fennel, diced
1 red beet, diced
1 cup tomato sauce (I used homemade sauce, more on that later)
1/4 head of red cabbage, sliced into short pieces
2 basic sausages, cooked and sliced - turkey or pork, plain-ish, I get mine from an excellent butcher, Oyama
1 1/2 quarts chicken stock
1 tin white beans, rinsed in cold water
chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Couldn't be easier - I literally put everything except the parsley in a slow cooker and cooked it on high for 3 hours. To serve sprinkle with some parsley - this really freshens up the flavour of the soup.

I'll speak more of the smart and svelte part later.
