Red Bean Soup with Hearty Greens


This recipe is a great winter recipe…warm, comforting and ultimately just tasty! It takes advantage of a great winter green, kale, which holds up its integrity/structure in this soup to add great texture. The recipe “Red Bean Soup with Hearty Greens” comes from one of my favorite cookbooks of the moment: Mark Bittman’s “The Food Matters Cookbook”, which are a collection of 500 recipes based off his “Food Matters” approach toward healthy, sustainable, and conscious eating. This soup is great with a slice of hearty multi-grain bread on a cold day in the middle of winter.

I love using recipes as bases for my own interpretation and inspiration. In this case, I hardly had to modify the recipe (the colored writing on the recipe are my notes).

Enjoy!
