This is a combination of several Kale soup recipes I looked at, then modified to be in keeping with my Nutritarian eating style. The end result is a delicious soup with lots of flavor and healthy vegetables. It makes a big batch so there is plenty to freeze or eat another day. You can reduce prep time by using pre-chopped or frozen kale, frozen onion and mushrooms and jarred garlic.....For each can of low sodium broth, I substitute 2 cups water, 1 tablespoon VegiZest (from drfuhrman.com) and 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional).

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Remove the center stem from the kale and discard. Wash and chop kale leaves and set aside. If you don't know how to remove the stems from kale, Google: remove kale stems.
  2. Prepare garlic, onion and mushrooms and set aside.
  3. In a blender or food processor, puree 1 can of broth and 1 can of beans until smooth.
  4. Combine puree, kale, garlic, onion, mushrooms, remaining broth, beans, tomatoes and seasonings in a large soup pot (at least 6 quarts).
  5. Bring to a boil on moderately high heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking or burning on the bottom.
  6. Reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
