Kale, Cannellini and Potato Soup

 

A Taste of Home is a food story from Ballyknocken House, nestled in the gentle rolling hills of County Wicklow, where generations of Catherine Fulvio’s family have lived and farmed for over 100 years. This Kale, Cannellini and Potato Soup recipe is a perfect winter warmer.

 

Serves 4

 

This is where Italy meets Ireland – yes, it’s my taste nod to Italy and a really delicious and healthy blend of our two cultures.

 

Ingredients

 

olive oil, for sautéing

1 large onion, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

60g smoked bacon, diced

4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

1 tsp chopped thyme

100ml white wine

1.2 litres vegetable stock

salt and freshly

ground black pepper

60g curly kale,

washed and roughly shredded

150g cooked cannellini beans

 

 

Heat a little olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion for 5 minutes until soft and just starting to colour. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the smoked bacon and sauté until fairly crispy. Add the potatoes, thyme and white wine and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring from time to time.

 

Pour in the vegetable stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat. Check the seasoning, adding salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Simmer for about 18 to 20 minutes.

 

Stir in the kale and cooked beans and simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes, until the kale is just tender.

 

Ladle into soup bowls and serve.
