White Bean Soup with Kale (Recipe)


✅ 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1/2 cup yellow onion diced

✅ 2 cloves garlic minced

✅ 1 1/2 cups celery diced

✅ 1 1/2 cups carrots diced

✅ 5 cups vegetable or chicken broth
✅ 3 15-oz cans white beans such as Great Northern beans or cannellini beans

✅ 2 cups kale stems removed, leaves chopped

✅ 2 cups baby spinach

✅ 1/4 cup parsley chopped

✅ Kosher salt

✅ Freshly ground black pepper


1️⃣ Heat the olive oil over medium-low heat in a large pot. Add the onion and garlic and let it cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

2️⃣ Stir in the celery and carrots, and cook for another 3-5 minutes.

3️⃣ Add the broth and bring to a boil. Rinse and drain the beans well. Stir into the soup, lower the heat to a simmer, and let it continue cooking until the carrots and celery are tender. Using an immersion blender, wooden spoon or potato masher, mash some of the beans - this will make the soup thicker and creamier

4️⃣ Drop in the kale and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Let it bubble for about another 5 minutes, then stir in the spinach and about a tablespoon of the parsley.

5️⃣ Serve immediately with a drizzle of olive oil and more parsley sprinkled on top, or croutons, if you like!
