WHITE BEAN & KALE SOUP



This veggie packed soup is perfect for days when you just want something light & nutritious to warm the soul. It is also a perfect way to use up what leftover produce you have from the week. While I always love a good creamy soup (my favorite being any kind of chowder) sometimes I just want something light, yet still filling that I know will leave me feeling great. This soup has 10 different plants and 3 different herbs making it a diverse pot of gold for your gut and packed with micronutrients. I definitely recommend giving this recipe a try the next time you just want something nutritious, cozy, and delicious. Not to mention, it takes under an hour to make!
