Creamy White Bean & Kale Soup

Sep, 05, 2014

We eat a lot of soups in our family for many reasons; it’s cheap, it’s easy to make and my kids love soups. This is one of my favorite soup because I can use vegetables from my garden and just add some beans which I always have a good stash of in my freezer.

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ large yellow onion, peeled and mincedWhite bean and kale soup
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and pressed
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced small
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup cooked white beans
  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • Herb salt to taste

Heat oil in a large soup pot, heat oil on medium heat. Add Onion, garlic, carrots, celery, pepper and bay leaf. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add broth and cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Add beans, milk, nutritional yeast and kale and simmer for 10 minutes. Add herb salt to taste. Enjoy!
