We just hosted a fun “Soup’s On! Recipe Challenge” at the Churchill School, and we received some amazing soup recipes written by children who worked with their parents to come up with an original recipe for a delicious and nutritious soup.
We plan to include our winning recipe & our honorable mentions in the blog for all of our readers to make at home, hopefully inspiring you to cook more at home together with your family!
We hope that you will enjoy Chloe’s White Bean & Kale soup, one of our honorable mentions from our recipe challenge:
- 1 small onion diced
- 4-5 cloves garlic diced
- 2 can diced tomatoes (not drained)
- 2 can white beans, drained and rinsed cannellini or northern white beans
- 1 package vegetable broth
- 1 small bunch of curly kale
- 3-4 sprigs of thyme or rosemary
Directions: Saute onion & garlic in pan until translucent, then add broth, tomato, and white beans. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 10 minutes. Ladle 1/3 of soup into blender, blend until smooth, pour the blended mixture back into the pan. Add thyme or other fresh herbs, bring to a boil, add kale in small pieces, simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove the sprigs of herbs then serve.
