Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
My Italian Grandmother used to make "Bean Soup" every Friday, especially during Lent. This tastes so much like it; it took me back to my childhood. She used cauliflower instead of Kale, but the taste is the same and the Kale gives it a nice color and used tomato paste, instead of chopped tomatoes. But, really it is basically the same recipe. She always mashed all of the beans, even in her Italian version of Chili. It makes the soup so full-bodied. Her "Bean Soup" was served over homemade Graham Bread. She filled a big bowl with a whole loaf of chunked up Graham Bread and then poured the pot of soup over it. The bread soaked up the soup and it was very substantial. I think when I make this next time, I will add a bit of bulgur wheat. It has the same taste as the Graham Bread. I do that when I make Grandma's soup. It adds a nice nutty flavor and also is very healthy. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

This is just the perfect combination of sweet and sour. The almond extract is just right. And it is so easy to make!
