Soup Season!

Here is a delicious recipe on how to make a Kale Vegetable medley soup!  Perfect for those rainy Fall season days!

Ingredients:

  • 2 t olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (more or less, I opt for more garlic)
  • ¾ c chopped celery
  • 1-2 chopped carrots
  • salt and pepper
  • dash of thyme (optional)
  •  1 16-oz can petite diced tomatoes (or 1 ½ c skinned, chopped and seeded tomato\es with juices)
  • 1 can white beans (e.g. Cannellini), drained (or 1 ½ c of cooked white beans)
  • 12 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 bunch curly green kale, stemmed and roughly chopped

Coat the bottom of the crockpot with oil.  Add onion, garlic, celery, and carrots, stir.  Cover and cook on high for about a half hour.  Alternately, you can sauté these over the stovetop and place in the crockpot to save time.  Season with salt and pepper, and add a dash of thyme.

Add tomatoes (undrained), beans, and vegetable broth.  Add kale and stir gently.  Cover and cook on low for 4 hours up to 12 hours.  This soup tastes even better the next day.
