Thyme-Scented White Bean and Sausage Stew Recipe
This hearty stew is full of warm and comforting flavors. Carrots, parsnips, onion, and garlic are sautéed in a splash of olive oil until they're just barely tender. Once the veggies are added to the slow cooker, smoked Italian sausage, great Northern beans, diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, dried thyme, salt, pepper, and a bay leaf are piled in. The stew will cook on LOW for 8 hours or until the vegetables are tender. While the stew cooks, an addictive topping of butter, panko, Parmesan cheese, and parsley is pulled together. Each serving of soup will receive a healthy dose of the panko mixture. The crunchy, buttery bits are an utterly decadent finishing touch to an already flavorful stew. Serve Thyme-Scented White Bean and Sausage Stew with a crunchy piece of French bread and a small spinach salad for a complete meal that will satisfy the whole family.
