Retail has their "Winter White" specials, so why not have a "Winter White" special in your kitchen? This white bean soup is full of delicious "super food" vegetables that will taste too good to be healthy!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 large potato, diced (may use 2 small if that is what you have)
  • 2 cans of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup white wine (I used Black Box Chardonnay)
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium chicken broth (additional)
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup freshly chopped kale
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

In a large soup pot, sauté 2 carrots, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 shallot in olive oil. Add 1 large diced potato, 2 cans of cannellini beans that have been drained and rinsed, then add 4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth, water and 1 cup white wine. Thicken this mixture, if desired, by mixing 3 tablespoons corn starch with 1/2 cup cold chicken broth. Once mixed, add to the soup and stir. Bring soup to a boil, then add 1 cup of freshly chopped kale. Add 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes, covered. Enjoy with your favorite bread.
