Happy Friday!! For us Angelenos, it is finally winter…well fall…well cool enough to wear a sweater outside and not sweat. We can still wear a sleeveless shirt outside and not get frost bite, but we consider this our winter. So, with this drastic change in temperature, all I want to consume is soup! One of my favorites is the white bean and kale soup from Whole Foods. So, of course I decided to make the soup at home. Follow along with the recipe below for a delicious, warming, healthy white bean and kale soup!
1 Can of White Beans
3/4-1 Bag of Frozen Kale
1/2 Cup Pearl Onions, defrosted and cut in half
A few stalks of Celery
1 Inch piece of Ginger
1 Garlic Clove
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt, Onion Powder, and Cayenne Pepper
Coat bottom of soup pot on stove with EVOO
Once hot, add celery and onions
Using a microplane, grate garlic and ginger into pot
Sauté celery, onions, garlic, and ginger until celery is soft
Add chicken stock and bring to boil
Turn heat to medium and add white beans, kale, and spices
Let soup simmer for at least 30 minutes
Dish out and serve soup topped with shaved Parmesan cheese!
I think my soup out turned out amazing! Next time I want this soup, I am going to think twice about purchasing it from Whole Foods.
Have a great weekend and stay hungry…
