Healthyish Brand: Kale and White Bean Soup

Kale is known as one of the most nutrient-dense veggies on the planet. It’s PACKED with vitamins, iron and antioxidants that have been known to ward off disease. In fact, kale is a natural source of quercetin and kaempferol, which are two antioxidants that combat inflammation, and in some cases, depression. To read more click here.

And while kale is undoubtably a healthy veggie, white beans also share some amazing superfood properties. They’re loaded with fiber, vitamins, iron and potassium making them a great addition to any healthy soup recipe. These little beans are also high in protein and have been known to boost metabolism.

I enjoyed my kale and white bean soup with a side of buttered french bread. However, toasted naan bread or a baguette would taste great as well. Looking for more soup recipes? Try my cabbage soup with orzo pasta or my immune boosting garlic and ginger soup.
