  • 2 Tablespoons
    olive oil
  • 1
    onion, chopped
  • 4
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 2
    celery stalks, sliced finely
  • 2
    carrots, sliced
  • 6 Cups
    chicken broth
  • 1/4 Teaspoon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon

    bay leaf
  • 14 Ounces
    cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon
  • 1 Cup
    leafy greens (kale, spinach or chard), chopped


  1. In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in onion, garlic, celery, and carrots and continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add chicken broth, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaf and cook until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and cover and simmer gently for about 45-60 minutes.

  3. Add beans and season with salt. Add leafy greens and cook until tender, approximately 5-10 minutes, depending on the greens being used. Serve.

  4. For a creamier texture, prior to adding the greens, the broth and vegetables can be blended with an immersion blender until desired consistency is reached.
