White Bean and Kale Soup

In the winter, it is nice to have a bowl of something warm to sit down to after coming in from the cold.  Which is where soup often comes in.  On weekdays especially, I love coming home to find dinner already made, and so making soups in large batches during the weekend is a nice option.  A lot of soups freeze well and can be stored in individual portions for a quick meal later.  Which is why I am sharing a hearty winter soup with you today.  My White Bean and Kale soup can be a substantial meal when served with a salad or hearty bread for dipping, and it freezes exceptionally!

In a large stock pot, saute onions in olive oil over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes, then add garlic and saute a minute more until fragrant.

Add the wine, tomatoes, herbs, sweet potatoes, sea salt, red pepper flakes, and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender. Add the beans, and kale, and cook a minute more until the kale wilts.

Taste for seasoning and add more salt if necessary. Serve hot!
