    I also added this to the recipe collection. A great holiday season meal that is easy to prepare, inexpensive, and well rounded (not to mention delicious!)

    Bean and Kale Soup (Vegan)

    Ingredients:

    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    6-8 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    2 bay leaves, or 2 teaspoon oregano for a different flavor
    1 6-ounce can of tomato paste
    2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
    2 15-ounce cans cooked beans of choice, drained and rinsed
    2 quarts vegetable stock or stock combined with water
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 bunch kale, large ribbed removed, chopped




    Instructions:
    Heat olive oil in a pot. Add garlic and cook until lightly browned. Add tomato paste and vinegar, and cook for 1 minute. Add beans, bay leaves, and stock/water, and simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add kale and cover about 3/4 way, and simmer for 1 hour. Season again as needed. Remove bay leaves before serving.

    This dish is delicious with a hearty bread or crackers. Great for a winter meal.

    Note: If using oregano, put it in with with the garlic.

    Serving size: 6-8

    Prep time: 20 minutes
