Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, add the onion, carrots, and celery. Saute about 4 minutes

Dump the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, bay leaf, and rosemary. Saute another 1 minute.

Pour in the vegetable broth or chicken broth, beans, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 15 minutes.

Throwing in a parmesan rind will add another layer of nutty flavor. I don’t always have rind on hand.

Add the kale and simmer another 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the bay leaf, use an immersion blender to partially puree the soup. Leave some chunks of beans and vegetables. If you don’t have an immersion blender, remove a couple of cups of soup to a blender or food processor, puree then pour back into the pot.
