Kale and Bean Soup

This is from my friend Lynne's recipe blog. It is one of our all time favorites. Don't be frightened of the kale. Really. This is yummy.


8 large garlic cloves, crushed or minced.

1 medium onion, chopped

4 cups chopped raw kale.

4 cups chicken or vegetable broth

2-3 (15 ounce) cans beans, such as cannellini , navy, pinto, un-drained.

4 plum tomatoes, chopped

1-2 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning.

Salt and pepper to taste.

The recipe calls for a parsley garnish. Basil is much more delicious.

In a large pot steam (or sautee) garlic and onion in a bit of water (or olive oil) until soft. Add kale, broth, beans, tomato, herbs, salt and pepper. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Ladle into bowls; sprinkle with chopped parsley (or basil).
