Curly Kale Chicken Cannellini Soup

Hearty Fall soup that is easy to make.  Kale is delicious in vegetable soups and adds great color to bean soups.  Add some grated carrots and a chopped fresh tomatoes will make an appealing presentation to a bean soup. Serve it with corn bread or crusty rolls with lots of butter.

I started with enough chicken pieces and stewed them to make the broth and cut  chicken to make the soup. The canned beans are added with out draining.  Just dump them in the pot.  There is lots of flavor in the canned liquid and it helps to thicken the soup. Kale is added last and cooked just enough to wilt the kale so it doesn’t take on the greyish green color of being over cooked.  The stems will need to be removed and only the leaves used.

    It’s definitely soup season, and this one would suit us to a T. All I need are the beans.

        Ok. If this posted 2x I’m sorry. Is it one can of bean or 2? I was showing this recipe to my daughter, and she noticed it says a can of beans shows up 2x.

          There is 2 types of beans. One is a small white bean and the other is larger bean called cannellini. The small white bean is usually called Great Northern Navy Bean around here. We can purchase both either canned or as dried bulk beans. It will take 2 cans of beans. You can even add more if you like.

              That is OK. It sometimes takes me several reads of a recipe because I miss stuff.
