I think this is my new all time favorite soup! I have made so many different variations of this recipe by using what I had on hand. Instead of olive oil I use coconut oil and add about 4 cloves of fresh garlic...I've added cabbage, zucchini, crushed red pepper, you name it. It gets better every time I make it! Read More

Didn't change a thing. Couldn't be much simpler. And for sure delicious. I've made this many times. Usually use cannellini beans. They come out so creamy. Read More

This recipe was fabulous and so simple yet so tasty!! I had no cannelloni beans but had some red potatoes from the garden. I boiled 5 medium sized red potatoes that were cubed in a vegetarian chicken broth. In a separate pan I sauteed a full onion and about 6 cloves of garlic that I minced in a food processor. I took a host of tomatoes from the garden and pulsed them in the food processor and added it to the onions and garlic and reduced this mixture. This I added to the potatoes and kale. I always de-stem kale (the main stem) I think it reduces the bitterness - I also chopped it finely. I used no other spices other than extra salt and pepper. It really needs nothing. So impressive and simple. I WILL make this again - so easy to add variable vegetables from the garden. Thanks so much for posting! Read More

Delicious and wholesome for lunch or a light supper. I added a cup more broth and used cannelloni beans as suggested by an other reviewer and added some hot sauce and grated Parmesan before serving. Read More

This was a nice change from the other kale soups that I make like (Olive Garden's which I prefer) but welcomed the change of flavors this one gave. I pretty much kept to the recipe but did use some cherry tomatoes for the small tomato (what I had on hand) and I did add a clove of garlic while sauteing the onion. I did cook a little longer at the end just because I wanted the kale cooked a bit more. Made again and this time I doubled the recipe and used a can of diced tomatoes. I thought this gave too much of a tomato taste so next time back to just a tomato. Did add some garlic again to the onion while sauteing. Made again and used Roma tomatoes instead of can and it was good. Forgot the garlic this time and I could taste the difference. Read More

Wow! So easy & quick & delicious! I had left over rotisserie chicken kale zucchini and homemade chicken broth that I needed to hurry and use before they went bad. I sauteed some red onions and red bell peppers and as one recommendation suggested I also add potatoes and red pepper flakes. After tasting it I realized I also had some cheese tortillini in the freezer & added those right at the end - it made this recipe absolutely perfect! I also added grated parmesan on top just before serving. What a great way to use up everything in the fridge without waste & my husband scarfed it down! Read More

I'm always surprised how easy and delicious this is. I get tons of Kale from my CSA so this is one way to get it eaten while fresh! I usually add whatever needs to go I affectionately call this 'kitchen sink soup'. Typically I add garlic with the onions and cayenne before the liquid and a can of corn. I have added green beans chard zucchini...you name it! You can't really go wrong. It's a canvas waiting for your touch. Read More
