Tuscan Kale and White Bean Soup

Grown and savored in Tuscany for centuries, cannellini beans are the shining star in this beautifully balanced soup. Filled with a welcoming combination of sautéed aromatics, sweet sun-dried tomatoes, savory broth, bitter kale and creamy cannellini beans, every bite will ignite your taste buds. We recommend doubling the recipe to freeze.
