Recipe Notes

  • Don't have kale? Don't add it. Or try spinach or your favorite greens.
  • If you don't have a regular blender, use an immersion blender.
  • Use vegetable broth for a vegan lunch or dinner.
  • Store any leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Puree one can of the cannellini beans (undrained) in a blender until smooth. Drain and rinse the other two cans.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a soup pot. Add the garlic and cook about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the pureed cannellini beans, rinsed and drained beans, broth, rosemary, thyme and red pepper flakes, to taste.
  4. If using, add the chopped kale to the pot.
  5. Simmer, stirring often, about 15 minutes. Season with black pepper and salt, to taste. If you want the soup creamier, mash up some of the beans to help thicken it. Serve.

Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds , thought about you while I was making this last night. So simple and healthy. And it's super fast to make. I only added the kale because I had it. Next time I may add some Italian sausage, too. (More for Martin than me!) :-)
