      Great soup! Reminds me of the things my old Portuguese Avo would make when I was growing up. I used organic kale and a lot less chicken broth, so it was more like a thick stew than a soup. Also used 2 tsp. of Italian seasoning instead of the rosemary and thyme. I didn't bother pureeing the beans and broth. Came out great! Even my picky husband loved it.

      Thanks for a great recipe! I used spinach and kale, skipped the parsley and used cilantro instead. I didn't have any thyme, but came across some lemongrass seasoning and used that as a substitute. In spite of my improvisations, this was a family favorite that I'll make again.

      Fantastic!! The only thing I changed was to use all kale and no parsley, since thats what I had on hand. Thank you for a keeper!
