Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 quart vegetable broth (or chicken)
  • 28 oz cannellini beans, drained and rinsed 2 - 14-ounce cans
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes with juices 2 - 14-ounce cans
  • 3 cups kale, ribs removed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, and celery. Saute for about 4 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, bay leaf and rosemary. Cook another 1 minute.
