Kale, Butter Bean and Sweet Potato Soup

Sandra McGrath


I am always trying out different combinations for a good soup, especially in the cold weather. This recipe was so delicious and really nutritious as well. The butter beans have a meaty texture and are very satisfying.

How to Make Kale, Butter Bean and Sweet Potato Soup


  1. Saute onions in a little butter, olive oil or just a bit of broth on the bottom of your soup pot.Add broth and bring to a boil. Add sweet potatoes and kale and lower heat to slow boil for 5 minutes, then add the rest of the ingredients. I add the liquid with the tomatoes and the beans. If you can't find butter beans you can use lima beans or cannellini beans.Once the potatoes are cooked and kale is soft the soup is done.Can top with grated cheese if you like.
