Yummy Potato, Bean, and Kale Soup Recipe

Make This: Kale Potato Bean Soup

The pumpkins are hardly in the compost and the Christmas decorations are already popping up in storefronts, which means old man Winter is on his way. Before the leaves are all on the ground, I'm bulking up on my warm and hearty soup recipes. One of my all-time favorites is Italian wedding soup, but sometimes I'm just not in the mood for the meatballs. When that's the case, I take comfort in this yummy kale potato bean soup that's a cinch to make and a crowd-pleaser to boot.

Chock full of tasty veggies, protein packed beans, and other fresh ingredients, this vegetarian soup is quite tasty and easily adaptable. I, for instance, like to add more beans and corn to the mix every so often. And on those rare moments where I do want a little meat in the pot, it's simple enough to add bits of grilled chicken or meatballs. So the next time you think about kindling the fire, consider firing up a bowl of the kale potato bean soup to go along with it!
