So much flavor and so easy to customize with your choice of greens! You can even substitute vegetable stock to make this a fully vegetarian dish! Serve with crusty bread for dipping. Tastes even better the next day! Enjoy!

Very easy delicious and healthy! I made this exactly as written well except I used more kale bc it does shrink down quite a bit once cooked. I had the opposite experience as the other reviewer - I felt this had a ton of flavor especially given that it's only seasoned with salt and pepper! To make blending the beans easier I removed some liquid from the pot and added that to the beans before blending. This is a very hearty soup and makes 6 good sized portions. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for the great recipe sarah! Read More

This was a good soup. I used frozen collard greens instead of kale which worked great. I docked it one star because I felt it was a little lacking as is. I added some oregano a little basil and some mini bow tie pasta which I feel really helped make it tasty. I didn't puree the cannellini beans ahead of time rather I used my immersion blender to blend right in the pot (I did this step before adding pasta.) Read More

This soup is delicious! My husband ate four bowls the night I made it. The recipe is simple and easy to follow. The flavor is great and I really enjoy the kick from the ACV. I'm adamant about getting more vegetables into our meals so this soup is perfect. Read More
