Hi there! I want to share a quick recipe I made tonight that is one of my absolute favorite comforting meals – Spicy Tomato Kale Soup. I can’t even begin to tell you all of the many reasons I love this soup – is it is really easy to make, lasts for a few days, freezes well, can feed a crowd, everyone loves it… I could go on and on.
I’d like to point out one of the products I used that is fairly new in my pantry – BioNaturae Strained Organic Tomatoes. These tomatoes are certified organic and come in a BPA free glass bottle, which is a major step up from the BPA filled aluminum cans that most tomatoes come in. Also – these tomatoes are SALT FREE! Which means you can add high quality sea salt to your liking. This is a big deal since most of the salt they put in cans of tomatoes is highly processed, bleached and devoid of minerals.
I used Eden Farms brand cannellini beans which is another guaranteed BPA free product, also free of processed salt and certified organic. These beans add a nice creamy texture to the soup once it is pureed. You’ll never miss the cream that most recipes use in a soup like this!
These two products are a must in your pantry! Add them asap so you can make this yummy soup anytime!
- 1 tsp of olive oil
- 1 white onion chopped
- 4 carrots peeled and chopped
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
- 1 tbsp fresh basil

- 1 can of Eden Farms cannelloni beans strained and rinsed
- 2 cups water
- 1 bunch of kale chopped
- Heat olive oil on medium heat in a large pot
- Add onion and carrots and cook for about 4-5 mins
- Add garlic next and cook another 2 mins
- Add spices, broth, water, and tomatoes to pot and bring to a boil
- Once soup is at a boil, reduce to simmer and add beans
- Simmer soup for 25 mins
- Discard bay leaf and puree soup using a hand blender
- Add chopped kale to pureed soup and stir into pot
Have a great end of week!

We love this recipe and would love to share it with our readers over on our blog. We’ll definitely give you all the delicious credit that you deserve! This soup is a perfect post-Arctic Blast warm up!
I’ll make this in the summer with local and organic ingredients. Sounds amazing. I think I’ll throw chickpeas in with the kale for more texture, and omit the sage so it doesn’t interfere with milk supply. Thank you for the recipe.
What do you mean about the sage and milk?
Sage lowers milk supply for breastfeeding mama’s.
Your recipes look great! Can you add easy pinterest links to each one you post? I can’t seem to ever do it easily from your site. Thanks!
Can’t wait to try this! I have Kale and tomatoes in my freezer from my garden.
I will use chickpeas since I already have cooked ones in the freezer. I will use fresh tomatoes and just water instead of broth. I also need to cook kale longer for my toddlers liking 🙂
Hey food babe, if you can also post slow cooker recipes, that would be very nice 🙂
love this! I also use the soft pack of cannellini beans from Whole Foods! No can!
I made this for dinner tonight and my kids said it was the best tomato soup they have ever had! Thank you!
Can you post the nutrition information on this soup? Made it last night and it was delish!!
There are excellent alternatives to Eden products that are also bpa free and do not have a boycott against them. Most of these brands are less expensive, as well. Consumers must read the label to see if the cans are bap-free and buy according to their consciences. Eden foods is owned by a person who violates his workers’ rights just because he personally does not like the Affordable Care Act He has publicly said that he does not have a religious objection to birth control products, he just doesn’t believe his workers should use them! It is irresponsible for you to promote the Eden brand. But then again, anyone who calls herself “babe” is suspect in my book,.
Laurie is an idiot. You go Babe
This sounds so good I am making it tomorrow. Yummmmmm. Thanks so much.
Reply to Laurie A. Smith: If calling herself “babe” makes Vani suspect, why do you come on here? Get your own site and push your agendas there. We like Vani, the Food Babe, and don’t need you to disturb our reading time.
