Low amine bean and kale soup

I was feeling under the weather, and needed some hearty soup to help clear the evil out of my body, so decided to throw together a low amine soup. I was craving tomato soup like crazy, but since I haven’t come up with a low amine tomato soup yet, this low amine bean and kale soup is the next best thing.

7 C homemade vegetable broth

1 C water

1 C chopped flat leaf parsley, stems included

1 bunch kale, ribbed and chopped into bite sized pieces (discard kale ribs, or save for making veggie stock)

1 C mixed dried beans

1 medium sweet potato

2 small Russet potatoes

Juice of 1/2 lime

4 Tbsp minced ginger

2 Tbsp minced garlic (about 8 cloves)

5 Tbsp minced shallot (about 1 1/2 shallots)

4 Tbsp grapeseed oil

1/2 C fresh, organic apple juice (optional)

2 Tbsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp rosemary

1 large bay leaf

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

Frozen broth and mixed beans

  • In a medium sized stock pot, bring pre-made vegetable (or other stock) broth to a boil, add beans, and reduce to low simmer.
  • Add parsley, cumin, turmeric, bay leaf, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cover.
  • Heat a separate sauce pan to medium high. Add oil and minced garlic, ginger, and shallot. Stir often and cook for about 3 minutes, or until fragrant and garlic has started to brown.

Cooking shallot, ginger, and garlic

  • Add cooked spices to stock pot.
  • Add kale, lime, and water. Cover and cook for 1 hour on low (just barely simmering).
  • Chop sweet potato and Russet potatoes into small, bite sized pieces. After the hour is up, add it to the pot.
  • Add apple juice.
  • Cook for additional 1/2 hour to hour. Low amine bean and kale soup is done when the largest beans in the soup are cooked through.
