Kale, Spinach, and Bean Soup for #SundaySupper

Kale Spinach and Bean Soup

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love a comforting bowl of soup. I relish the slightly cooler days that we experience here in Florida because it gives me the opportunity to put a big pot of soup on the stove. Once the summer temperatures begin to creep in and the heat rises above 80 degrees, it just doesn’t make sense anymore. So for today, I am diving into a big bowl of kale, spinach, and bean soup!

Kale Spinach and Bean Soup

The Sunday Supper family is getting together today to share heart healthy dishes in honor of American Heart Month. This theme happens to be right up my alley, as putting together healthy dishes is a favorite of mine. I love when I can whip something up that is delicious to eat AND good for you! This kale, spinach, and bean soup fits the bill. It is packed with multiple foods that are great for your heart: tomatoes (filled with lycopene), beans (healthy protein), spinach and kale (containing carotenoids, fiber, vitamins, and minerals), and red wine.

Kale Spinach and Bean Soup

It’s so easy to make this soup, so there is no reason for you not to try it out! I mean it: it’s one of those recipes that you can dump together and walk away for the most part. And the results are plentiful: unless you’re serving to a large group you will most certainly have leftovers to enjoy. I think that might even be one of my favorite parts: with the busy schedule I’ve been dealing with lately, it is nice to have a dish I can make on one day and then enjoy the leftovers as a no-fuss option on following nights. I like to serve this soup up with a generous portion of side salad. And maybe a glass of red wine…
