Soup with Kale

I love kale, especially in soup. My grandpa used to have an awesome garden in his backyard, one of the things he grew was kale. We used to always eat it steamed with butter and italian salad dressing.

Another great thing about kale is that in soup it isn't as soft as spinach, it stays slightly firm.

1 large onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 or 5 cups chicken broth
2 cans (15 ounces each) white kidney or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 garlic cloves, minced
5 cups chopped fresh kale
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large pot saute the onion, garlic and Italian seasoning in oil until onion is tender.
Stir in the broth, beans, sweet potatoes and kale. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper. Simmer 10-15 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
