7 Days of Kale -Day 2- Kale and Bean Soup

18 Apr

Kale works really well in soups and stews. Make sure to chop the kale in to small pieces. I use a food processor to finely chop the kale before adding it to the soup. This recipe makes a large batch and freezes very well.

Recipe

2 Bunches of Kale, destemmed

1 sweet onion, diced

3 leeks (whites only), diced

3 large carrots, sliced

2 boxes (32 oz) veggie broth

1 can diced or stewed tomatoes

1 can small white beans, rinsed and drained

3-4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

cayenne pepper to taste (optional)

In tall saucepan, saute onions in oil for 3 minutes, add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Add broth, kale, carrots and canned tomatoes. Cook until kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Add canned beans. Serve hot.
