There’s something so comforting about delicious homemade soup on a chilly day, so we created this recipe for white bean & kale soup. It’s the perfect easy, hearty (and healthy) meal to warm up the whole family!  Enjoy!


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups cooked white beans, divided
  • 1 medium carrot, diced small
  • 1 celery, diced small
  • 1 onion, diced small
  • 5 – 6 leaves kale, chopped finely in ribbons
  • 1 ½ tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 fresh sage leaves
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • Fresh ground pepper, for taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Baked crispy chickpeas (optional)


  1. In a medium-large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic and stir. Sautee the vegetables until softened and starting to become translucent (about 5-7 minutes).
  2. Add about half of the cooked beans and half of the stock. Puree the rest of the beans and stock in a blender along with the tomato paste, sage and rosemary. Stir the pureed beans into the soup. Add the salt and pepper.
  3. Mix the kale into the soup and cook until it has wilted (10-12 minutes). Add the lemon juice and some filtered water, if necessary, to make the soup the consistency you like. For a thicker soup, leave as is.
  4. Serve with crispy baked chickpeas and parmesan cheese (optional).
