  • 1 bunch kale, de-stemmed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 carrots, diced finely
  • 1-2 peppers, chopped small
  • 2 cans cannellini beans, (14.5 ounces each), drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper
  • parsley
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, (optional)
  • Cooked spicy sausage, such as chorizo or hot Italian (optional)

    In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute or two.

    Add about half of the beans, and lightly mash with a fork. Add water and stock, and the rest of the vegetables. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes, until carrots & pepper are partially tender. Stir in kale, parsley, remaining beans, 2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add cooked sausage here if using. Partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer until kale is tender, about 5-10 minutes.

    Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan, if desired. Serve with crusty bread.

Kale Chips


  • 1 bunch kale
  • olive oil in Spritzer, or in small bowl
  • Seasoning desired - sea salt, parmesan cheese, chili powder, etc.


  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F. Use convection if you have it.
  2. Oil a baking tray.
  3. With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems, but try to keep leaves whole. 
  4. Lay kale leaves on the oiled tray. Spray or brush top sides of leaves with olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle with seasoning of your choice.
  6. Bake until the leaves just begin to get dry & crispy, edges brown but are not burnt.
  7. This can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes, but they must be watched closely! They will go from perfect to burnt very quickly!
