LEMON WHITE BEAN KALE SOUP #vegetarian #appetizers

An establishing Tuscan-style, garlicky Lemon White Bean Kale Soup, arranged without any preparation utilizing entire dried beans. Genuine soul nourishment and best delighted in with a natural handle of sourdough.

This isn't excessively different from the sort of soups I grew up with, especially the sorts my Nana used to make. Dried beans, splashed at that point cooked in a natively constructed juices, with a lot of olive oil and garlic (it's a Croatian thing!), and home developed vegetables included not long before serving. White beans can allude to either the bigger cannellini beans (which I have utilized), or the littler naval force beans. They are unmistakably increasingly charming dried and cooked versus canned. It's no task to absorb them advance, you just need to have them on the stove somewhat more.

Beans contain a decent measure of oligosaccharides: sorts of sugars/fiber that go through the little gut undigested, showing up at the colon where they give nourishment to the occupant helpful microorganisms (Bifidobasteria and Lactobaccilli).


LEMON WHITE BEAN KALE SOUP #vegetarian #appetizers


  • 150 g cannellini beans dried (see notes re. using canned, pre-cooked beans)
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large white onion diced
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon thyme dried
  • 1 inch strip kombu
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 small potatoes peeled and cubed (about ¾ cup)
  • 1 cup kale very tightly packed (preferably Lacinato kale, curly kale isn't as nice a texture)
  • Juice and zest of one lemon


  1. Soak dried beans in ample water (they will double in size) for at least 12 hours, the drain and rinse, ready to cook.
  2. In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and cook diced onion till soft and golden.
  3. Add water and stock, dried beans, garlic, thyme, kombu and bay leaves. Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for about 40 minutes.
  4. While the soup base cooks, wash kale, remove tough inner stalks, then slice into thin one inch ribbons – take your time with this, it is far nicer to have small delicate pieces.
  5. After 30 minutes, add the potato, and leave to simmer for a further 10-15 minutes, at which point, both beans and potatoes should be soft. Fish out the bay leaves and kombu and discard. Now use a potato masher to carefully mash the beans/potatoes so about half of them are mashed and half whole (if beans/potatoes aren’t soft yet continue to cook a little longer).
  6. Add kale, and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Note the water content – you may be just right, you may need to top up, or even cook uncovered to reduce it down.
  7. By now, your total cooking time should be about an hour and ten minutes.
  8. Once kale has just softened, add another tablespoon of olive oil, and stir in the lemon juice and zest. Serve with crusty bread and perhaps a sprinkle of nut parmesan!
