One of my favorite soups.


white bean, kale, and vegetable soup

White Bean, Kale, and Vegetable Soup

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots, peeled
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups water or Vegetable Broth
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 cups chopped B-size red potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups kale, torn into bite-size pieces, lightly packed
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onions and carrots until vegetables are softened. Stir in garlic, and cook for another minute, stirring constantly so garlic doesn’t burn.

Add water or broth, cannellini beans, tomatoes, potatoes, green beans, kale, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered, over low heat about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)

Recipe Notes

  • Remove ribs from kale before using.
  • Substitute great northern beans for cannellini beans.
  • Use russet potatoes instead of red potatoes.

    Love this recipe for the Daniel Fast, but we eat it regularly in our normal diet. It’s that delicious! It’s definitely best with homemade veggie broth. 🙂

  2. Can you freeze the soups? I have try some of the recipe and they are good !!!!

  3. I just started a Daniel fast yesterday and am so glad that I found your website! I made this soup for dinner last night . . . everyone loved it! I made a double batch so I would have lots of leftovers – and it’s a good thing I did! 😉

  4. Jenniffer says:

    Do you have a recipe for vegetable broth?

  5. Could this be made in a crockpot and still taste delicious?

  6. Awesome soup! I will make this again and again! Thanks for these recipes?

  7. Christina B. says:

    I used a can of mild rotel in place of the diced tomatoes and left out the green beans. It was amazing!

  8. This was the first time my husband and I have been on the Daniel Fast. I must say the food is DELICIOUS!! This is one of our favorite soups! We will defiantly be using this well after our fast is over. Thanks a Million!!

    • Hi! I’m glad to hear you and your husband are doing the Daniel Fast together. May the Lord fill you both with His power and peace as you seek Him. Thanks for taking time to comment and for your positive feedback!

  9. Is there any crackers allowed on the Daniels fast? like nut-thins?

    • Hi, Chastity! Yes, it’s possible to find Daniel Fast friendly crackers. First, they must be whole grain. Second, they must be baked (package will say “baked”). Some people choose to have plain Triscuits. But check the ingredients label because there are some Triscuits that aren’t Daniel Fast friendly. Nut Thins are NOT allowed on the fast because they contain ingredients that are restricted (such as milk). If you haven questions on other specific brands, let me know. I hope this information helps!
