White Bean Soup with Sausages and Kale Chips

I don’t know the source of this recipe but it is so delicious I wanted to share with you. Please let me know if you know the source so I can give proper credit. (I’ve might very minor changes)

3 tbsp avocado oil 
1 onion, chopped 
1/3 cup each, diced carrots and celery 
2 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
1/2 tsp sea salt (use a bit more if you’re using beans with no salt added)
Freshly ground pepper
2 bay leaves 
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary 
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock (I used water mixed with @traderjoesumami seasoning)
1/2 tsp liquid smoke 
3 cans white kidney beans, drained and rinsed 
2 sausages (I used @jacksgourmet )
1 tsp oil
Garnish with kale chips (see below for recipe)

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook onion, carrots, celery and garlic with salt and pepper, until tender. Add in rosemary and bay leaves and cook for another minute. Add stock and liquid smoke and simmer for 5 minutes. Add in beans and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Remove bay leaves. 
Use an immersion blender to partially blend, but leave some chunks for a nice hearty texture. .
In the meantime, slice hot dogs and fry in a bit of oil to cook. .
Serve soup topped with hot dogs and kale chips if desired. .

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread kale (washed and thoroughly dried) over baking sheet in single layer. Spray generously with additional cooking spray. Sprinkle generously with everything but the bagel seasoning. 
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until crisp
