Soup is a family affair…
















I wanted to make this wonderful soup that I had while on our getaway last week.  I decided to make it while the twins were awake…  I have learned to put only plastic things within reach and to move very quickly so that I can get what I need done and they don’t unload the entire fridge.  The soup I had on our trip was Kale and White Bean at a Whole Foods.  I searched the Whole Foods site and did not find a recipe like the one I tasted so I ventured into a search online.  I came across a wonderful version of the soup at The Clean Eating Mama and adapted it to my liking.  This is what I made up:


Kale & White Bean Soup








1 T coconut oil

chopped onions

4 cups veggie broth and 2 cups water

2 cans of white beans drained

1 can of diced tomatoes

2 carrots diced

2 cups peas

2 T basil

2 T parsley

1/2 T chipolte chili pepper powder (Omit if you don’t like spice…this sure added some zing!)

1 bunch of kale chopped, most of the stems removed


In a large pot heat the oil and onions until the onions are translucent.  Add the carrots and peas let them cook for a few minutes.  Add the broth, water, beans, tomatoes, basil, parsley and chipolte chili pepper.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat add kale and let the soup simmer for 20-30 minutes.
















The end result was a very flavorful yummy soup.  When I make a bowl up for myself I add some cooked quinoa to the bowl and then top with the soup.  This adds to the great flavor and quinoa is such a wonderful grain.
