Whenever I go to Italy, I love to enjoy a simple Black Kale and White Bean soup, which is the ultimate comfort “peasant” food. Who said that healthy food is way more expensive? Utter nonsense when it comes to comforting hearty soups like this. Although it’s called “black” kale, it’s actually just Lacinto or “Dino” kale, which is the most common kind you’ll find.
What I love about this soup: The kale gives you all the disease-fighting compounds of a cruciferous veggie. The beans fill you with healthy plant-based protein, and the onion and garlic are great immune boosters.
I recommend serving yourself a huge bowl of this nectar with either some warm brown rice on the side, or a crusty sourdough bread.
