I love Kale. I love it steamed, in soup, in salads and just raw. I started eating it because it is a super food, and kept eating it because I really like it!
One of my favorite recipes is derived from this one from Canadian Living. But, as always, I changed it a bit.
Here is my version:
White Bean and Kale Soup
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1.5 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp pepper
- 8 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
- 2 cans 19 oz/540ml of white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 4 cups of diced new potato
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 cups shredded deveined kale or spinach
In Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat, add onion, garlic, parsley, coriander, cumin and pepper.
Cook, stirring until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
Add stock, 2 cups water, beans, tomatoes, potato and salt; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer until vegetables are almost tender, about 20 minutes.
Add kale; cook until tender, about 15 minutes (if using spinach, cook for 2 minutes).
Yum, I love soup!

Oh, kale is wonderful :-)
I know! Going to make spaghetti with it tonight.
This recipe is right up my alley! Pinning and excited to try it!

This looks terrific! If you buy fresh parmesan to grate on your food, the rind left at the end would be great thrown in this soup while its cooking!

Perfect timing. I have kale I need to use up and was wondering what to do with it! I have never tried it in a soup.
