Kale and Bean Soup

Kale and Bean Soup



I found a recipe for Bean Soup with Kale on http://www.allrecipes.com/ and "Hollified" it. A lot.

Ingredients:
  • EVOO
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch of kale, chopped with long stalks removed all the way through the end of the leaf)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 - 15oz cans kidney beans (drained)
  • 1/2 big can of diced tomatoes (about 1.5 cups)
  • 2 - 3 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 - 3 tsp dry thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium potato - diced
  • 4 large carrots - sliced


Directions:
  • Spray large pot with EVOO and heat.
  • Saute garlic and onion until soft.
  • Add kale and saute until wilted (see photo below).
  • Add broth. At this point, I used my immersion blender to chop the kale even smaller (see photo below).
  • Add carrots, potato, Italian seasoning, thyme, canned tomatoes, and salt & pepper.
  • Simmer about 15 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are getting soft.
  • Add beans and simmer until heated through.
