S. and I stopped at Alstede's Farm Market today and they had a table with a sign on it that said "First New Jersey Harvested Vegetables of the season" or something like that, and on that table was some beautiful Kale - so we bought a bunch. What to do with it? Soup!
I used a variation of the recipe from Day ? when we made this soup with Swiss chard and cannelloni beans.
I made a broth from about 5 cups water, 2 carrots, 1 small potato, 1/2 turnip, 1 stalk celery. some parsley, 2 scallions, 1 onion, salt & pepper
Sauteed a chopped onion in 1 tablespoon butter - cooked 5 min or so
Chopped the Kale (small chop) - added and cooked down
Added the broth and 1 can of rinsed and drained navy beans cooked for about a half an hour while I made the grilled bread and set the table
