Tuscan Bean Soup
We loved this soup so much we had to make it twice in the same week. It is hearty and warming perfect for the winter weather. Serve with griddled garlic sourdough or ciabatta.
Add the olive oil to a large hot pan.
Add the onions, celery, carrot and garlic.
Sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the thyme and oregano and sauté for a further minute.
Add the veg stock and the beans.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the kale and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
