Simple white bean soup

Simple white bean soup with pain de campagne

Saute chopped onions and garlic in olive oil (I didn’t use garlic because I’d run out, but this is an Italian-inspired soup so that’s probably illegal). Add a chopped piece of bacon if you wish. Once the onions are translucent, add a chopped carrot and cook for a few minutes. Then add some broth (I used fresh chicken broth, but stock/bouillon cubes in water will do), chopped kale (or other greens, such as collard or beet), a can of tomatoes, and a splash of white wine (optional). Simmer until the kale is cooked (about 5 minutes), then add cooked or canned navy/cannellini beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and grated Parmesan or other hard cheese. Enjoy!
