Butternut Squash, Kale, and White Bean Soup

This is the third time I’ve made this soup.  The first two times, I had every intention of taking a photo so that I could blog about it.  But, alas, I kept forgetting.

Butternut squash, kale, and white bean soup

I found this recipe on the blog For Love of the Table.

You’ll need:

  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tbs fresh rosemary,minced
  • 8 to 10 oz. kale, de-stemmed and cut into ribbons
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 15 oz. can white beans
  • parmesan cheese, grated, for garnish

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, add theolive oil.  Over medium-high heat, cook the onions, garlic, and rosemary until the onions are translucent.

Add the kale.  Cook until the kale begins to wilt.  Add the squash and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Add the broth and salt and pepper.  Let everything simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the squash is tender.

Once the squash is tender, using a spoon, smash some of the squash against the side of the pot.  This will help thicken the soup, as well as give it a nice orange-y color.  Add the canof beans, liquid and all.  This will also help thicken it.  Simmer for 5-10 minutes more.

Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.  Ladle into bowls and top with grated parmesan cheese.
