Yummy Beans N' Greens in a Bowl (Kale Soup)

Yummy Beans N' Greens in a Bowl (Kale Soup) created by Mamas Kitchen Hope

A light and delicious fast fix meal that is easy on the waist and the pocketbook! This comes together very fast and will fill you up with just a few tasty but healthy ingredients. The quantity listed leaves you with a soupy, brother bowl of yum! You could add another batch of kale if you like, there is that much broth. Also great with all kinds of beans. To me this dish seems like a beautiful marriage between Italian and Southern cooking. Hope you enjoy! PS: If you use a vegetarian 'chicken' broth this will be completely vegetarian friendly! Skip the parm or use a vegan parm and you have a vegan friendly dish! The portion is very generous! Adjust time if you are using more tender greens so they are not over cooked.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat a dutch oven and spray with cooking spray. Add olive oil and then the onion and garlic. Saute just until it begins to soften, Add chicken broth and allow to continue cooking while you begin the next steps.
  • Wash whatever greens you choose to use and remove any hard stalks. Stack the leaves one on top of the other, roll like a cigar and slice into 1/4 inch slices, then cut the pieces in half. This will give you nice ribbons that are not too wide or long.
  • Add greens, sugar and nutmeg (if using) to the pan. (Save spinach for later) Stir to combine. (The sugar will not make the dish sweet but will balance some of the bitterness from the greens).
  • Rinse and drain beans and add to pan. Stir gently. Simmer for 20 minutes or until greens are al dente or as soft as you would like. Toss in spinach just to wilt.
  • Ladle each serving into a bowl and top with a generous sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan cheese and additional cracked pepper if desired. Crusty bread is also a great accompaniment for all the yummy broth that is swimming in the bowl.
  • Enjoy!

    This is a kale recipe that pleases both DH and I. Kale salads are too much of a good thing for DH but he likes this. I made it exactly as is. My kale bunch was pretty large so I used an extra 14 1/2 oz can of broth. Tasty and health and goes together pretty fast.

    This is so delicious and I really appreciate the flexibility! I never know what I'll get (or have left at the end of the week) from my CSA share so it's great to adapt. I only made one tweak - added some soy based bacon flavored crumbles. Thanks for sharing!
