How to make it

  • Heat the oil in a heavy pot. Add the onion and sautee for about 5 min., or until lightly caramelized.

  • Add water, wine, kale, salt, sugar and vinegar to the pot.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer on medium for 30 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and cook for 15 minutes more, or until the potatoes are soft.
  • Add the butter beans and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and turn off the heat.

    This soup recipe sounds so good my mouth is watering. It contains everything I love, and its good for you at the same time. I just had some Kale last night I cooked in Beef broth & water with smoked neckbone, and seasonings. Plus I put vinegar on it in my serving bowl. I just love Chorizo Sausage...Thanks for such a great recipe!!!

    This sounds great juels, I wonder if you've ever come across a recipe for cream of garlic soup, bein that you're a soup afficionado. I had some once whilst I was in Germany, and have never been able to find a recipe that comes close

    I made this soup but doubled the recipe due to size of my family. We loved i! I used canned milk instead of the cream because that was all I had on hand and didn't want to drive all the way into town for one thing. :-))
    Thanks for the post!

    Jules, this sounds yummy! I will have to try this one. Otter, using cannelini beans is a good alternative as well, I love them and I always have them in my pantry.

    Correction on the nutrition info -- can't edit my alteration :( When I measured out the soup I found that my way made 1 gallon of soup or 16 cups. Which is fabulous news because it means I can have a 2nd cup on my diet :)

    Yield 16 cups - 1 gallon

    Thanks, Otterpond, for trying the soup, and for your wonderful alterations and even nutrition counts on this recipe! The smoked jalapeno worst sure sounds good! I also love cannelini beans, they are one of my favourites, and the sweet potatoes is a very interesting substitution!

    I made this up this morning. It was an "I Love Lucy" moment. I thought I would use my crockpot but when I added the kale I knew that just wasn't going to work out. Had to transfer it to a jumbo sized soup pot. Too funny.

    I made some substitutions for what I had on hand. Didn't have any heavy cream so I used evaporated milk and cornstarch for a substitute. Seems to have been okay. I also didn't think it was enough liquid so I used 8 cups of water and 4 cups of wine. It smells wonderful and I'm looking forward to it for lunch today.

    I put my altered recipe with its nutrition counts under the alteration section.

    I really love the addition of butter beans (and HEAVY CREAM!). It would be interesting to try this with Soyrizo (the soups I make at the cafe are vegetarian).
