Kale and Bean Soup


1 tablespoon of olive or canola oil
6 to 8 cloves of garlic (crushed or minced)
1 large onion, chopped
4 cups fresh chopped kale (or 2 to 3 packages frozen)
3 cups, plus 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
2 15-ounce cans white beans
1 large can stewed tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
Garnish: 1 cup chopped parsley


In a large pot, heat olive oil then add garlic and onion. Saute until soft. Add kale and saute until wilted. Add 3 cups broth, 1 can beans, tomatoes, herbs, salt, and pepper. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes.

In a blender mix the remaining broth and beans until smooth. This will act as a thickener. Add to soup. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve in bowls and garnish with parsley.
