It’s chock full of goodness—that is to say spiced chicken sausage, tender chickpeas, wilted spinach, and a bevvy of Italian herbs in a rich, tomatoey broth. Soup’s on!

Italian Chicken Sausage Mix
Chicken Stock Concentrate
• Wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and finely dice onion. Drain and rinse chickpeas.
• Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage* and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. • Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-5 minutes. • Stir in tomato paste and half the Italian Seasoning (all for 4 servings); cook, stirring, 30 seconds.
• Stir 2½ cups water (5 cups for 4 servings), stock concentrates, chickpeas, and a big pinch of salt into pot. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Simmer, covered, for 7 minutes.
• Once soup has simmered for 7 minutes, uncover pot and stir in spinach. Simmer, uncovered, until spinach has wilted, 2-3 minutes more. Season generously with salt and pepper to taste. • Divide soup between bowls and serve.
