Since I have much more time at home during the day, I’ve taken to making soup for lunch! I’m not exactly sure why, but I find soup so soothing. I also enjoy how easy it is to make. At the start of each week, I chop onions, celery, and carrots to get the base of my soup started. I then peruse my pantry to see what I have available to toss into my dutch oven to create a delicious soup.

 

This week, I had extra cans of white beans and tons of kale that needed to be used, thus resulting in this delicious White Bean Kale Soup. This soup is hearty, very flavorful, and comes together in less than 30 minutes! It’s a perfect low effort, healthy meal that takes only 10 minutes of your time in the kitchen. (If you’re like me you love cooking, but could use a little break!)

onions for soup

Start by chopping onion, celery, jalapeno, habanero (trust me you’ll love it in this soup), and garlic. Then, add ghee and olive oil to the dutch oven pot over medium heat and saute the onions for about 5 minutes. You will want the onions to get lightly caramelized because this adds a delicious sweet flavor to the soup.
