Very easy, delicious and healthy! I made this exactly as written, well except I used more kale bc it does shrink down quite a bit once cooked. I had the opposite experience as the other reviewer - I felt this had a ton of flavor, especially given that it's only seasoned with salt and pepper! To make blending the beans easier, I removed some liquid from the pot and added that to the beans before blending. This is a very hearty soup and makes 6 good sized portions. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for the great recipe sarah!

This was a good soup. I used frozen collard greens instead of kale which worked great. I docked it one star because I felt it was a little lacking as is. I added some oregano, a little basil, and some mini bow tie pasta which I feel really helped make it tasty. I didn't puree the cannellini beans ahead of time, rather I used my immersion blender to blend right in the pot (I did this step before adding pasta.)

Excellent flavor. I added some cayenne to give it a little zip.

This soup is delicious! My husband ate four bowls the night I made it. The recipe is simple and easy to follow. The flavor is great, and I really enjoy the kick from the ACV. I'm adamant about getting more vegetables into our meals so this soup is perfect.

Great, nutritious soup. I followed Lilsnoo comment of adding more kale and using liquid to blend the cannelli beans. I will definitely make again. Soup was superb.
