Kale and White Bean Stew

Kale is the perfect healthy boost to this delicious white bean stew. Soak your beans overnight. Discard the soaking water and rinse your beans before cooking them. It will reduce flatulence and speed the cooking time. I recommend to double or triple proportions to make soup for several days. The cooking time will remain the same.
