"Creamy" White Bean Soup

What you need: 

2 tablespoons olive oil (or enough to saute)
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
4 medium carrots, sliced
3 small celery ribs, sliced
5 garlic cloves
8 fresh basil leaves, chopped up (8 tablespoons dried is fine too)
4 cups vegetable broth
2 (15-ounce) cans white beans
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 cup kale, chopped
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. In a pot over medium-high heat, heat olive oil, then add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and basil; saute until the onion is translucent.
2. Add the broth, beans, and nutritional yeast; increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, or until the carrots are soft.
3. Turn off heat and blend with stick blender. If using a regular blender, blend soup then return to pot. (The blended beans is where the "creamy" comes in. I leave some soup unblended to add texture. To use a regular blender, let the soup cool some and then transfer a portion of the soup to the blender. Be careful and don't add to much to the blender because you might get burned from it splashing up!)
4. Add kale and turn back on the heat for 4 minutes.
5. SERVE! Season with salt and pepper. We loved to dip our garlic bread in this!

This soup was super easy and DELICIOUS! I added half of one cauliflower, a little bit of chopped, fresh ginger and a pinch of smoked paprika, and all the flavours melded together very nicely. Thanks for a great soup recipe. I will definitely be making this again!


I just noticed that I forgot to mention to chop the garlic or put it through a garlic press. ;)
