Dull, wet day so made soup. This is a hearty soup – almost a vegetable stew – and stuffed full of goodness – celery, carrots, tomatoes, cannellini beans and kale (if you don’t like kale, try spinach).
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 onion – chopped
1 large clove of garlic – finely chopped or grated
3 sticks of celery – finely sliced
2 largish carrots – finely sliced
1 cup of chopped tomatoes
1 can of cannellini beans
4 cups of veg. broth/stock
2 handfuls of chopped kale
Heat oil in cast iron casserole dish and when sizzling add onion and let it brown a bit, then add garlic.
After a few minutes, add the rest of the ingredients.
Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 minutes with the lid on.
