Ingredients:
History: I list this recipe as being of Portuguese flavor. I'm sure there are many versions but with the kale involved it makes it more a Portuguese dish
Description: A very easy soup to make of onion, kale, beans and tomatoes.
Preparation time: about 1 hour
Serves: 4 to 6

Amount/Measure/Ingredient:
1 tbsp. of olive or canola oil
6 to 8 cloves of garlic ( crushed or minced)
1 large onion, chopped
4 cups of kale chopped if fresh ( you can use frozen 2 or 3 pkgs. or if canned use 2 to 3 cans )
4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
2-15 oz. cans of white beans, any kind
1 can of stewed tomatoes or chopped fresh tomatoes
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of chopped parsley
Instructions:
In a large pot, heat olive oil then add garlic and onion. Sauté these ingredients until soft. Add kale and sauté until wilted. Add 3 cups of the broth, 2 cups of beans, tomatoes, herbs, salt and pepper. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes.
Use a blender, or what have you, mix the remaining beans and broth until smooth. I bet you're asking why, it's to thicken the soup. Mix into soup. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve it up in bowls and sprinkle with parsley.
