Heat oil in a large soup pot. Add sausage and cook until cooked through and browned on the outside. Remove and set aside. Slice into 1/4-inch rounds.
Add onion, carrot and celery to the pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened but not browned, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic and sauté an additional minute. Add broth, rosemary, red pepper flakes, bay leaves and beans. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, remove about 1/3 of the beans and transfer to a blender jar along with enough liquid to blend to a smooth puree. Add puree back to the pot of beans. Add the sausage and cook an additional 5 minutes.
Add spinach or kale and continue cooking until completely wilted, about 5 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in lemon juice. Ladle into bowls.
Top with more sausage and croutons.
