INSTRUCTIONS

1
PREP: Rinse and wash the produce. Dice the onion, slice the celery and carrots in ¼ inch rounds, drain and rinse the beans, mince the garlic, chop the kale into 1 inch ribbons. Peel and dice the sweet potato.
2
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery. Cook until vegetables are softened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add the beans and 6 cups water to the pot and cook for 10 minutes.
3
Strain out 1.5 cups of the beans and vegetables with minimal liquid, set aside.
4
Carefully pour the remaining broth into a blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency. Depending on the size of your blender, you may have to do this in two batches. Set aside blended mixture.
5
In the same soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, cook for 2 minutes and then add the kale, bean puree and sweet potato. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low until potato is tender, about 15 minutes.
6
To serve, spoon soup into bowls and top with reserved beans and vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!
