  • 1 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • ½ medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 2 small sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, hollowed out and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 cans cooked cannelini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups kale, chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • pinch red chili pepper flakes, for garnish


  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook for about 5 minutes, or until they are translucent.
  • Add the carrots and sweet potatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in bell pepper and cook for another 3 minutes, or until the vegetables start to soften. Add garlic and rosemary and cook for 1 minute.

  • Spoon soup into individual bowls. Top each bowl with red chili pepper flakes.
