A bit of sausage adds a zesty kick to this hearty bowl of beans and root veggies; it’s a fresh take on slow-cooked comfort. If you can’t find pre-cooked sausage, buy it raw and sautée in step 1 with the veggies before loading and setting the slow cooker for the day. Serve this warm, cozy dish with a dark leafy green salad and a knob of crusty whole-grain bread—the perfect weeknight meal to fill you up without the guilt between all those holiday parties.
