Purim

Hearty Kale and White Bean Soup

If you’re looking for an immensely satisfying, healthy, one-pot winter meal, look no further than this kale and white bean soup. Using dried beans requires a bit of forethought for soaking and a longer cooking time, but you’ll be rewarded with intense flavor that can’t always be achieved with a canned bean. And perhaps, for those of us working from home (or home looking for work), it’s no big deal to take on some largely unattended cooking like a big pot of slow-simmered beans. The soup tastes even better on the second day and will keep for 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. It also freezes well, and small amounts of the leftovers make an excellent pasta sauce when thickened with a bit of tomato paste. This meal also happens to be vegetarian, gluten-free, and if you’re celebrating Purim, this bean dish fits the bill. You’ll find most of the ingredients in our weekly sale from February 18th – 24th, so it’s a great time to give it a go!
