Navy Bean Soup (with Kale)


It’s cold today.

Good day for soup.

I grabbed a cookbook (this time it was Weight Watchers) and looked for a recipe I had all the ingredients to, could add greens to, and freeze…

Navy Bean Soup!

The recipe called for Navy Beans in a can; I had Great Northern Beans in a bag. So I cooked that up.

The recipe called for fresh parsley; I had dried parsley. I moistened that up in the broth.


Oh! I must mention here the chicken bouillon I use. Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base – it is so flavorful!

The recipe called for fresh rosemary; I had fresh rosemary! (From the rosemary bush/tree outside my door – a Christmas present from my dear husband. ;)) This ingredient made my day because it filled my home with a lovely aroma the rest of the day!

Radish Top Soup

I just got my first CSA box. What am I going to do with all this food I’m not used to? Farmer Z said to use the radish greens as well as the radish. So here goes…radish top soup.

It’s good potato soup with a bit of spice to it. Not bad…

(What a weird soup!)
