Spicy Butter Bean and Sausage Soup

The weather calls for soup and comfort food, and by jove I will give it what it wants. I have beans in all forms in my kitchen, canned, dried, frozen, fresh, I don't know, can't seem to get away from them. Maybe it's just something in my psyche from when I was vegan. But they are so useful, to bulk out a dish, adding texture and flavour, not to mention their amazing nutritional profile. The recipe I'm sharing today is simple, nutritious and the whole family can enjoy it - goes well with homemade artisan bread.
