Kale Bean Soup is a delicious way to put more Kale into your diet and love eating it. This is one of the best soups with kale, you do not want to miss out.
Kale, the king of healthy greens, is one of the most nutritious plant foods in existence. We grow it every year in our garden. The problem for me is finding ways to incorporate it into recipes to reap it’s healthy benefits. Kale Bean Soup is a delicious way to put more Kale into your diet and love eating it. This soup with kale is packed full of flavor and extremely versatile as far as what can go into it and even the way you cook it.
I think of soups as good base recipes for me to build on as far as ingredients and flavor goes. It’s usually a work in progress until it’s finally tweaked to my liking. You could certainly substitute other greens for Kale, or use a combination including it, but having a soup with kale has extreme health benefits. I simmered the soup on the stove for about an hour to make sure that the kale was nice and tender. You could also use a crock pot and let it gently cook for about 6 hours on low. Adding chicken or Italian sausage will satisfy the meat lovers in your family. Kale Bean Soup is a hearty, delicious meal that just happens to be good for you. If you are a soup fan of any kind, make sure you use this as your soup with kale to maximize the health benefits while eating tasty food!
Kale Bean Soup is an easy one pot recipe that starts by placing olive oil in a large pot and sauteing the garlic and onion in the recipe until soft. Add the fresh kale to the ingredients in the pot and stir until it’s wilted.
Next, add 3 cups of broth and 2 cups of beans to the pot. The recipe uses chicken broth, if you’d like this to be a vegetarian soup, substitute the chicken broth in the recipe for vegetable broth. After the broth is added to the pot, place the tomatoes, Italian herbs, lemon juice, Parmesan rind, salt and pepper to the soup. Simmer the soup for 5 minutes.The last step in this delicious soup is to place the remaining beans and broth in the recipe into a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Stir the processed broth and beans into the pot and simmer the ingredients about an hour or until the Kale is tender. Remove the Parmesan rind from the soup, ladle the soup into bowls and top with grated Parmesan.
If you’ve never used a Parmesan rind when your making soup your going to be soooo very pleased with the flavor it adds. I don’t make soup anymore without using it. Whether I’m making a chicken or beef flavored soup I use the rind from a wedge of Parmesan Cheese. If I’ve already used the rind and I’m making another batch of soup that week I cut a slice of Parmesan from the wedge end and throw it into the soup as it simmers. It adds wonderful flavor. Kale Bean Soup is an easy, healthy soup. Use this soup with kale to add more Kale to your diet, ENJOY!

This is the second time I have made this soup….so yummy and very healthy! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe that is so good for the body and even better for the soul! Can’t get enough of it! <3
I’m so happy you loved it Rebecca, thank you so much for letting me know you made. I appreciate it!
This is a delicious and truly easy recipe. However, I did alter it according to my needs and availability of ingredients. I replaced kale with spinach, white beans with garbanzo and edemani. Added turkey meatballs, mushrooms, onion and a little garlic. It turned out fantastic. Love it that it is so tasty and healthy too. Don’ t skip the lemon, it gives that fresh flavor. Thanks for the great soup recipe that can be so easily adapted to one’s taste and items on hand.
Cooking is all about making it your recipe Carol, you made it yours and it sounds FANTASTIC!
This soup looks so good! Make a big pot of this and you are set for lunch all week long.
Thank you Erin
I love how comforting this soup looks and sounds . I would love a bowl of this right now!
I just made white bean and kale soup today. I think this combination must be popular:)
Thank you Ilona.
Love this comforting soup idea. I love adding kale into my soups.
Gets better and better everytime I make it! Thank you for the share
Thank you Noelle.
Oh my that looks so good. I am definitely making this. My last bag of kale went on making kale chips. I will have to buy some more. Sharing!
I love how healthy and comforting this soup is! Perfect for these cold winter days!
This is a rich and comforting soup. Delicious, and I already had all the ingredients, except the canned tomatoes. I used salsa instead, and it worked great. I don’t know if you normally use the curly kale you buy in the grocery store, but I grow my own, dinosaur kale–it’s a smoother leaf, long and narrow. I think it’s more tender than the curly kale. Thank you for the recipe. I will definitely make it again and again.
I’ve never heard of Dinosaur Kale! Yes we always grow the curly Kale in our garden, I’m going to have to check that type of Kale out Diana. Wonderful, I’m so happy you made it and enjoyed it, thank you for taking the time to come back and comment, I appreciate you!
This soup is delicious! I have never used a parmesan rind before and it blew my mind. Such depth of flavors. Love the thickness the puréed beans give this soup too.
So glad you enjoyed all the flavors of kale bean soup!
