Kale is super popular right now. So is being healthy. Every once in a while I decide to make a recipe that is meatless. I find soups to be the perfect, easy, go to recipe when I'm looking for a quick meal that is yummy. My friend told me she was making a kale and white bean soup that her family loves. So I researched - Pinterest of course - and found an easy kale and white bean soup.

I wasn't sure how the soup would go over, but I made it anyway. It was pretty good. I liked it, but when I make it again I would omit the potatoes. They were good but sometimes, potatoes can overpower a dish...at least in my opinion. I definitely love the fact that the soup is healthy and very filling.
