Tips and Tricks for Making The Best White Bean and Kale Soup

  • Add In Your Favorite Veggies: This soup is very easy to edit to include your favorite veggies or the ones in your fridge that need to be used up! Try broccoli, green beans, corn, or mushrooms.
  • Don’t Skip the Saute! Cooking the onions, carrots, and celery slowly for at least 10 minutes allows them to start to caramelize and release much more flavor. Trust me, you don’t want to skip this step.
  • Adjust the Seasonings: Sage and rosemary pair beautifully with garlic to create the flavor of the broth, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. Add a pinch of crushed red pepper for some heat, or use Italian seasoning or your favorite herb blend in place of the other herbs.
  • Make white bean soup extra thick and creamy by pureeing some of the soup using a blender and adding it back in.
