Kale is known as one of the world's healthiest foods because of its high nutritional content. It is very high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, so it is a great super food to include in your diet. 

Serve with a side of bread and if you want more protien, you can add chicken or sausage to the soup.

Preparation steps

1.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan set over a moderate heat until hot. Add the onion, carrot, celery, bouquet garni, and a little salt.
2.
Cook for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and translucent. Cover with the passata, beans, and stock, stirring well.
3.
Cook until simmering and then reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for a further 25 - 30 minutes until the beans are tender.
4.
Once the beans are tender, stir in the kale and cook for a further 5 minutes until tender. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
5.
Heat the grill to hot. Top slices of bread with a little cheese and seasoning. Grill for a minute until the cheese is melted. Serve the crostini alongside bowls of the soup.
