Ingredients:
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 boxes (32 oz. each) unsalted or low-sodium chicken stock (for non-vegetarians) or vegetable stock
  • 1½ cups kale, roughly chopped into ½-inch strips
  • 2 c. cooked cannellini beans (freshly cooked or low-sodium canned, rinsed and drained)
  • ¼ c. Parmesan cheese
Equipment and Supplies:
  • Knife and cutting board
  • Large stock (soup) pot
Instructions:
  1. Peel and cut carrots and onion into small pieces. Mince garlic.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Cook carrots and onion until they begin to soften, about 5-6 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 3 seconds more.
  3. Pour in stock and bring to a boil. Adjust the heat so that the soup remains at a steady simmer (not a roiling boil) and cook for about 15 minutes.
