Cannellini Soup

  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp dried thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Roma or vine tomatoes, diced
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbsp white wine
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 8 cups vegetable broth
  • 6 large lacinato kale leaves, thinly sliced, coarse stems removed
  • Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Balsamic for drizzling
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and pinches of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft, about 4 minutes.
  3. Stir in the carrots, rosemary, thyme and garlic. Cook for about 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and another few pinches of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, for about 15 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and juicy.
  5. Add the wine and let it cook off, about 1 minute.
  6. Stir in the beans, and then add the vegetable broth.
  7. Simmer until the carrots are tender, 30 to 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Once the carrots are tender, stir in the kale and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Simmer for several more minutes until the kale is wilted.
  9. Season to taste and serve hot in large bowls.
