1 Tbsp. of olive or canola oil
6 to 8 cloves of garlic ( crushed or minced)
1 large onion,chopped
4 cups of kale chopped if fresh ( you can use frozen 2 or 3 pkgs or if canned use 2 to 3 cans )
4 cups of chicken or veggie broth
2-15 oz. cans of white beans,any kind
1 can of stewed tomatoes or chopped fresh tomatoes
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of chopped parsley
In a large pot, heat olive oil then add garlic and onion. Saute these ingredients until soft.Add kale and saute until wilted.Add 3 cups of the broth, 2 cups of beans, tomatoes, herbs,salt and pepper.Simmer 5 to 10 minutes.
Use a blender, or what have you, mix the remaining beans and broth until smooth.I bet your asking why, its to thicken the soup. Mix into soup.Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve it up in bowls and dress with parsley.
P.S. As you me, I eat a good portion of it before I get to the table.
