CSA kale soup

We got some great things in our local CSA box this week. I took a recipe from my good friend Kelly @ Zest blog. It's a simple soup with kale, white beans and broth.

Here is the stuff you'll need. Oops forgot that I used our farm spring onions instead of this grocery store yellow onion. Also carrot is not shown. We used farm kale and some organic spinach for the greens in this soup. You could use any braising green you want. If it takes good regular it probably tastes good in soup. We actually only used 1 can of white cannelli beans instead of two shown. Slight recipe adaptation. 

Semi Organic memo: For some reason we always always get the organic baby spinach from the grocery store. Don't know why its a must have organic but it seems to be. We also always get organic whole carrots too. They are just like 10 cents more expensive for organic than regular so its a no brainer.

You'll have to check out Zest for the full recipe. But basically you shop some onion, carrots & garlic. Saute it then add your greens, beans & tomatoes, then add broth and simmer. Beautifully quick and easy.

We cooked it in our IKEA Senior (yep) since our 2nd go to pot died recently. Good thing we got senor. He wasn't getting enough use anyway. Now he's on the stove all the time. Totally comparable with LeCrueset. Okay no fancy warranty but for a fraction of the price we have exactly the same thing. One the few cooking items you can even remotely say about IKEA products. I highly recommend the senor line.

It actually was our first forte into the kale world. And we gotta say. It was pretty good! We actually bought more yesterday. I found a huge selection of glory large kale bags for $1 at our local food salvage Fresh to Frozen. Win!
