If it’s as cold where you are as it is in London right now, sitting down to a hot bowl of homemade soup will hopefully sound like the perfect way to help warm you up!
I have a guest post for you today from the beautiful Bobbi from the blog NHerShoes and her recipe for kale, sweet potato and bean soup sounds absolutely mouthwatering.
I hope you enjoy!
Bobbi’s Kale, Sweet Potato and Bean Soup
My name is Bobbi and I blog over at NHerShoes. While sweet Julie is enjoying her wonderful vacation with the hubby I thought I would share one of my most favorite healthy soup recipes that won’t make you slave hours in the kitchen over! I honestly can’t get enough of this soup. It’s a bowl full of sexyness!
Kale, Sweet Potato, and Bean Soup
Makes 8 servings (2 quarts)
- 1 tbsp EVOO
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 cup celery chopped
- 3-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) vegetable broth
- 2 cans (15 ounces each) white kidney or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
- 5 cups chopped fresh kale
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 can diced tomatoes drained (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, sauté onion, olive oil, celery, and Italian seasoning in oil until onion is tender.
Stir in the broth, beans, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and kale. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover for 20 minutes. Stir in the garlic, salt and pepper. Simmer 10-15 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
This looks so good!
Thanks for the recipe! I’m always looking for more meatless dishes to incorporate for Dinner as I don’t eat much meat.

I LOVE sweet potato and bean soup. The addition of kale sounds really tasty. Thanks for the recipe :).
Do you think this can be done in the crockpot? I am going to try! Easy peasy!
Looks really good Bobbi!
I love making Kale soups on cold days, good way to get nutrients into the body and keep warm too. Never tried it with sweet potatoes but I will remember that for next time.
@ Anne – Yes you can do it in a crock pot, low heat with at least 6 hrs of cooktime and you’re golden. Let us know how it turns out!!

Yum this recipe looks great! I just found kale in the supermarket here in Australia so it is very good timing 🙂
I’m so sad that you’ve ended up with such a miserable time of year here – that soup would be perfect for warming up!
I think this is the first time my mouth got watery looking at kale.
