Three Bean & Kale Stew

We received more kale from the CSA and so I looked at a few different recipes and came up with this. This is a very flavorful and hearty stew. You can always use whatever beans you have on hand or like, or even use all of one kind.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 can Cannellini bean, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can Kidney bean, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can Black bean, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cans fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 3-4 cups chopped kale
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

This is my helper, she loves opening the cans for me (she is also a pretty good stirrer.)

 In a large soup pot, heat oil. Add onions and garlic and saute til translucent.

Add beans, tomatoes and seasonings. Stir well and bring to a boil.

Add broth and kale, simmer until kale is tender.

Serve with a crusty bread and Enjoy!!
