kale + white bean soup

what's not to love about soup, it is a weekly occurrence in our home - toss a few ingredients in a pot and simmer away. i had slow cooked great northern beans in the crock pot during the day with a bit of thyme, bay leaf and garlic- the smell was infectious, it hit you hard as you walked through the door. a smell that only meant one thing in that moment; soup was in order.

kale is a great winter green and pairs nicely with white beans, add in some garlic, roasted tomatoes and you are on your way to a mighty fine soup. like most soups this tastes even better the next day.

kale + white bean soup

olive oil
1 small onion or shallot chopped
4 garlic cloves minced
1 small bunch of kale chopped (about 2 cups)
2 cups white beans
2 cups cooking stock from beans
