Makes 4 Servings

  • cannellini beans (1 can)
  • kale (1 large bunch)
  • lemon, juiced (1)
  • small onion, diced (1)
  • garlic, diced (2 cloves)
  • carrots, diced (1/2 cup)
  • celery, diced (1 stalk)
  • vegetable stock (4 cups plus 2 tbsp. for cooking)
  • turmeric (1 tsp.)
  • dried rosemary (1/4 tsp.)
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper (to taste)


  1. For an instant pot, turn on sauté mode. Add 2 tablespoons of vegetable stock (or water) to either the instant pot or soup pot on the stove. Once warm, add the diced onions and garlic and cook until slightly translucent.

  2. While the onions are cooking, in a separate bowl, juice the lemon into the kale and massage gently. Set aside.

  3. Add the carrots and celery to the onions and cook until slightly soft.

  4. Add in the rosemary, turmeric, and black pepper and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Then, add the beans, massaged kale, and remaining 4 cups of stock. Add salt to taste. 

  5. If using an instant pot, turn on the pressure cook mode and cook for 5 minutes. After making sure the steam has released, remove lid. If cooking on the stove, bring the soup to a boil then turn the heat to low and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. 

  6. Taste and season as needed and serve with toast.
