Preheat the oil in a large cast iron pot over medium heat. Add the sausage and start to break up with a wooden spoon. Continue to cook until the sausage is browned and has released some of it's liquids.
Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 2 - 3 minutes.
Pour the contents of the tomatoes into the pot, then add the beans and quinoa and stir to combine. Stir in the water and chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, leaving the pot partially covered until quinoa is cooked, about 20 minutes.
Stir in the kale and let soften for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
