- 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 2 stalks of celery, sliced or chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled and diced
- 8 ounces red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch pieces
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 bunch kale, stems removed, leaves torn into small pieces (4 cups)
- 1 cup of white beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can of whole peeled tomatoes, drained and diced (save drained juice)
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, celery, garlic and carrots until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
Add tomatoes and tomato juice. Let simmer for 3 minutes. Add potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
Add kale and beans and continue cooking until kale is tender, 6 to 8 minutes more.
This was probably one of my favorite recipes I've cooked lately. It makes the whole house smell amazing, doesn't take a ton of prep, tastes amazing and best of all fills you up nice and full. This dish has lots of protein and is under 300 calories. Eating clean is the best feeling and when it actually tastes good, it's worth the money!
This could definitely be your dish if you're a kale lover. I wouldn't say I'm the girl to wear a hoodie with #OhKaleYeah on it.... but it is really good. And we killed our bowls at the dinner table. Dad even got seconds which made me feel really good.
