Tasty Tip: Kale and White Bean Soup

White Bean and Kale Soup

White Bean and Kale Soup

It’s the perfect time of year for a homemade kale and white bean soup. The chilly nights call for you to cozy up and enjoy a hot bowl of soup. There is nothing better than a hearty AND healthy big ole bowl of kale and white bean goodness. My recipe takes the classic favorite a step further and adds savory BBQ turkey to the mix. The turkey creates a more complex flavor and allows the soup to be a full meal in itself. My secret ingredients are BBQ sauce and white wine! Try the recipe and see how the sweet BBQ and savory white wine pair perfectly for a soup to remember.¬†

In a large soup pot saute your carrots, onions and garlic with olive oil until the veggies are soft. Then, add in your chopped kale and chicken broth. Bring this mixture to a boil and then once boiling lower to a simmer. At the same time brown your turkey meat and bbq sauce in a pan, sprinkling salt, pepper and garlic powder over the meat. Then, add the meat to the soup pot. Now, it’s time to add in your white beans. Take a can of white beans and saute them in a dash of olive oil, a sprinkle of garlic powder and 3 tablespoons of white wine. After they have soaked up the white wine flavor, place them in the soup and let the whole mixture simmer for 20 minutes. Voila, you have a YUMazing kale and white bean soup!
