Kale and White Bean Soup


Kale and White Bean Soup


We like this recipe because it is easy and ticks all the boxes - healthy kale is the SUPERFOOD of superfoods and the cannelli beans give you your protein to fill you up.


  • 1 bunch of kale with thick stems discarded and rest cut into 2 inch pieces (should have approx 8 cups full)
  • 120g of small pasta shape suitable for soup
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 can cannelli beans (or more if you are a real bean fan!)
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1.5 litres of chicken or vegetable stock
  • pinch of red pepper flakes (optional if you want to spice it up)
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon, just a squirt of lemon juice 





Heat the oil in a large pot.

Add onion, celery, garlic, pepper flakes (optional), salt and pepper and cook until softened approx 5 minutes.

Add all the other ingredients and bring to the boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for an additional 5 minutes or until pasta is cooked.

Squirt in a bit of lemon jiuce, stir and serve.


Please note: This soup tastes even better the next day so don't be afraid of leftovers!
