Savory Kale, Cannellini Bean, and Potato Soup


I wanted to use some of the kale I froze for the winter, and have something healthy to bring to work for lunch this week, so I whipped up this soup, which is really quite good!

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • ¾ cup diced carrot

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup white wine

  • 3 potatoes, halved and sliced

  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh sage

  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 (16 ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 cups finely chopped kale leaves

  • 1 small red chile pepper, seeded and chopped fine

  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir the onion until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the carrot and garlic, and cook for 5 minutes more.

  2. Pour in the chicken broth, water, and white wine; stir in the potatoes, rosemary, sage, and thyme. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Add the cannelini beans, kale, chile pepper, and black pepper, and simmer, covered, for 30 more minutes.
