simple kale soup


  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 can of white beans (any kind)
  • 1 bunch of kale or half a bag of packaged kale
  • 32 ounces chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • fresh herbs like rosemary or oregano if you have them
  • 2-3 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. heat olive oil in saucepan over medium heat. add chopped onion and garlic and allow to simmer for three to four minutes.
  2. drain and rinse beans, then add to the saucepan. stir together so that beans are coated in olive oil and onion/garlic mixture.
  3. add turmeric and stock. bring up to a gentle boil and then add the kale and fresh herbs. reduce heat to a simmer, and wait for the kale to turn bright green.
  4. finish off with salt and pepper, but you shouldn’t need much. for a little kick, sprinkle with chili powder.
