White Bean and Arugula Soup

white bean and arugula Soup is definitely one of the hardest things for me to make. I don’t know what it is, but unless it is a blended, creamy soup, it just doesn’t turn out edible.

But every time I find a soup I love, I think the same thing “I want to make this at home!“. So I try, and usually laugh at how off it is. The best soups are recipes that I follow, or by pure accident. There are quote a few that have been dumped out

Recently we were eating at a new local restaurant and I tried the white bean and kale soup. It was broth based and contained white beans, arugula, and tomatoes. It was even better than I thought it would be and seemed easy enough to recreate at home. white bean and kale soupSo I procrastinated and procrastinated and let the tomatoes go bad and ate the arugula and finally gave in and made a batch of soup. It took about 10 minutes and was more than just edible, it was actually really good!

I thought today, I would share it with you, since many of you are snowed in, chilled to the bone, and could use a little extra warmth.  This super simple and comes together in just a few minutes. I use an organic, pre-made broth. If you have any homemade chicken or turkey broth frozen from the holidays, this is a great way to use it. Since I go the vegetarian route, I stick to a “no-chicken” broth, instead of chicken. It also tastes less vegetable soup-like than vegetable broth, and is much closer to chicken flavored broth. The ingredients can be thrown in the pot with the broth and cooked very quickly.
