Some friends of ours made the most delicious white bean soup with kale in it recently. We loved it so much that I decided to try and recreate a version of it. I call it Tuscan Bean Soup. So easy to make and you can pop in any extra vegetables from the refrigerator that need eating up!
2 Cans of White Cannellini Beans
2 or 3 Carrots
2 or 3 Stalks of Kale
1 Large Onion
1 Package of Sliced Proscuitto
1 Carton of Chicken Broth
Crushed or Minced Garlic
Salt and Pepper
First, chop up the onion into small pieces. Saute a bit of garlic in a large soup pot with some olive oil. Add in the onions and cook until transparent.
Chop up your carrots into small pieces and add to the pot:
Tear apart the kale into small pieces removing the thick stalks. Add to the pot:
Slice up the proscuitto into small pieces and add to the pot:
Add in the cans of cannellini beans with the liquid:
Lastly add the entire carton of chicken broth to the soup and a 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for about 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper taste!
Serve with some crusty bread pieces! A quick and easy meal!
