Bean and Kale Soup
This is the perfect soup to cozy up with on a chilly day. You get a creamy, comforting texture without adding dairy or cashews/nuts. It’s the most flavorful bean and kale soup you’ll ever try and you’ll only need about 30 minutes, 10 main ingredients, and a few spices.
This delicious bean and kale soup is also meal-prep friendly and tastes better the day after. I typically make a double batch to freeze or portion out into Tupperware for ready-to-eat meals throughout the week. I recommend personalizing it by substituting any ingredients to cater to your preferences.
Ingredients and tips:
Beans: I prefer to use Mayocoba(Peruvian beans) as they are my favorite. They are creamy, buttery, and hearty. However, you can pick your favorite white bean. I also recommend cannellini beans.
Kale: This is a great recipe to add kale to because you won’t really taste it. You can also use spinach as an alternative.
Vegetables: The recipe calls for carrots, potatoes, onions, and diced tomatoes in addition to the kale. The potato adds to the heartiness and creaminess of the soup while the tomatoes add a nice hint of acidity. I personally love this combination of vegetables but feel free to use any of your favorites.
Spices and seasonings: This is what adds layers of flavor to this soup. I highly recommend following the steps of cooking and using all the seasonings listed especially the nutritional yeast.
Vegetable broth: I use Better than Bouillon and dissolve about a tablespoon of it in 3 cups of warm water. You can use any vegetable broth of your choice.
