This is a very simple and easy recipe for soup. It is comforting and hearty, and it makes a great one meal dish. I use the pressure cooker to cook the beans, therefore the cooking time was very short. This soup is so simple therefore makes a great weekday dinner.


1 ½ cup navy bean
1 bay leave
½ tablespoon olive oil

½ tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion chopped
3 stalks celery
3 medium carrots
2 large Kielbasa smoked sausage

Sal and pepper to taste

Mozzarella cheese


Wash and soak the navy bean in water overnight. Place the navy bean into the pressure cooker with 3 cups of water, bay leave and ½ tablespoon olive oil. Cook in high heat until the pressure start, then turn to low and let it cook for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, sautee the onion with ½ tablespoon olive oil, add the sausage, the carrot and then the celery.

Add the sausage to the cooked navy bean, add salt and pepper to taste, cook for another 1~2 minutes.

When serving garnish with grated mozzarella cheese.

I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe
