I wanted to make soup and I wanted something different than what I usually make, so I went through my pantry to see what I had on hand.
I found the beans, broth, tomatoes and potatoes (in the freezer), the only thing I decided I needed and didn’t have was the kale.
So I started with getting the beans a quick start and headed to the store for kale.
When the beans were ready I put them in my soup pot along with frozen diced potatoes, covered them with a carton of chicken broth and brought it to a simmer. I added salt, pepper, onion powder, a few red pepper flakes and some turmeric.
I’ve been trying to add turmeric to quite a lot of my foods, its so healthy for you!
When the potatoes were tender I added diced fire roasted tomatoes, a little more broth, chopped kale and left that simmer for about 15 minutes and it was done!
I don’t usually eat a lot but I devoured a full bowl of this soup!!
White Bean and Kale Soup
Half a bag of small white beans, about 8 oz
2 cups diced frozen potatoes
1 32 oz carton chicken broth, plus more if you want to thin the soup as it cooks
1 cup fire roasted diced tomatoes, I use canned
About 1 big handful of chopped kale
Salt & Pepper to taste
A few red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp turmeric, optional
Soak beans, drain and place in soup pot along with the potatoes, pour in the broth and bring to a light simmer. Add spices, cover and let simmer until potatoes are tender. Stir often.
Add tomatoes and kale, let the soup simmer lightly for another 10-15 minutes. Add more broth as you prefer to keep soup from getting too thick.
If you make this soup I hope you love it as much as I do!!
