Kale & White Bean Soup

This is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink soup, but we figured that might not make the most positive first impression.  Grain, vegetables, and starch…this has it all.  The addition of black beans, if you have a can in your pantry, would only serve to balance it further, no?


Quantity Unit Name Link Alternatives
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups vegetable broth (low-sodium preferred)
1 bunch kale, ribs removed and chopped
2 large carrots, sliced into ¼-inch coins
1 (15-ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
salt, to taste


  • In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, cook the onions with olive oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes longer.
  • When the onions and garlic are translucent, add the vegetable broth, kale, tomatoes, and carrots, then cover.
  • Cook until the carrots and kale are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • When the carrots and kale are tender, add the cannellini beans, salt to taste, and cook until the beans are heated through.
