Gluten Free Friday ~ Super Easy Sausage Stew

It's not exactly Thanksgiving leftovers, but I suppose you could substitute turkey for the sausage!  And it's not original, but just another naturally gluten free dish I discovered in Real Simple magazine. (Have I mentioned that I like that magazine a little bit?) Anyway, this is a really easy recipe ~ very little prep, and a slow cooker dish at that. I threw all of the ingredients in the crock pot last Sunday morning before church, and the house smelled wonderful once we got back home.  I made some corn bread in a hot, buttered cast-iron skillet to go with it, and everyone loved it.

It's actually called....

White Bean and Kielbasa Stew

1 pound dry white dry beans (I used navy beans)
1lb kielbasa, halved lengthwise & sliced (or any favorite sausage OR turkey!)
4 cups GF chicken broth
1 cup water
1 can diced tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp dried rosemary
5 oz baby spinach (I used frozen)

In your crockpot (4-6qt sized) add all ingredients.  Stir to combine, and cook on high for 5-6 hours or low 7 to 8 hours.

That's it!  Super easy, super scrumptious!
