Clean Eating Recipe of the Week-White Bean and Kale Soup

Here's a yummy soup recipe I found in Vegetarian Times Magazine. I added garlic because I love it so much:) Enjoy!

Ingredient List
Serves 6

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced (1 cup)
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
3 cups chopped kale
1 small garnet yam, peeled and diced (1 cup)
1/2 to 1 Tbs. smoked sweet paprika, plus more for garnish
1/2 to 1 Tbs. curry powder
1 bay leaf
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 15.5-oz. cans great Northern beans, drained and rinsed, divided
1 to 2 Tbs. red wine vinegar


Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and cook 8 minutes, or until lightly caramelized, stirring often. Add garlic and saute 2 minutes longer.
Add kale, and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until wilted. Stir in yam, paprika, curry powder, and bay leaf; cook 1 minute more, or until fragrant.
Add broth, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 30 minutes, or until kale and yam are tender. Purée 1 cup beans with 3/4 cup water in blender or food processor. Add purée and remaining beans to soup. Simmer 10 minutes, then stir in vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each serving with paprika.
