Today’s “cold” weather called for some soup!
Here’s an easy recipe….
Heat oil in a large pot on medium heat.
Add the onion, salt, pepper and cook until soft.
Add the celery and butternut squash. Stir until combined.
Add the mushrooms and cook until soft.
Add the herbs, garlic, and bay leaves. Stir until combined.
Add the wine. Stir until combined.
Add the beans, tomatoes and vegetable broth. Stir until combined.
Simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Remove the bay leaves.
Add the balsamic vinegar.
Add the kale.
Cook until kale is wilted. This should only take 5-10 minutes.
Taste and add salt and pepper, if needed.
This recipe makes about 5 servings. If you are having a solo soup night and just want a little extra for leftovers, 1/2 the recipe.
