How you can Make Tuscan Kale and White Bean Soup
As with most good soups, this one begins with a savory base of sautéed onion, carrots, and celery.
Subsequent, we add tomato paste for richness, purple pepper flakes for warmth, and dried rosemary or thyme for herby goodness. Garlic is a should for an Italian-inspired soup, and basil, too!
Subsequent comes the vegetable broth, white beans, tomatoes, and salt and pepper, bringing us into soup territory.
After simmering to develop the flavors, we calmly purée the combination to interrupt up a few of the beans and create extra cohesiveness. However if you wish to maintain it a bit chunky, or don’t have an immersion blender, be happy to skip this step!
Then it’s time for the kale, or no matter greens you might have round (spinach, collards, or chard work, too!).
The ultimate touches are balsamic vinegar for sweetness and depth of taste and coconut milk (or cashew cream) for dairy-free creaminess.
We hope you LOVE this soup! It’s:
