Kale and White Bean Soup

A Sunday snow storm calls for cozy cooking.  This soup is easy to make, delicious and healthy.  I typically have the items in my fridge and cupboard which makes it a go-to.  Like most of the winter soups I make, I always add a Parmesan rind.  It adds so much flavor and you can keep them in the freezer so they’re ready to use anytime.
