A Day for Soup

This week I got an email from a friend to be part of a recipe driven email exchange. Basically you were asked to write a simple, preferably easy to make, off-the-cuff recipe, add your name and the person's name who sent you the recipe at the top of the email and send it to at least 20 friends, who in turn will do the same. Nice!
My Recipe:
White Bean Soup
-can of organic cannelini beans
-fresh sage and rosemary, chopped roughly
-handful of squashed cherry tomatoes or rough chopped larger ones
-about a cup of organic veg or chicken stock
-clove of crushed, chopped garlic
-carrot, chopped
-some chopped Italian kale or chard or something green if you want
-sea salt (always) and white and black pepper and a bay leaf if you have them
Throw it all in a little saucepan, let bubble and then simmer for about 20-25 minutes or til vegetables are tender. Throw in the chopped greens at the end and let wilt. It was great drizzled with a little olive oil to make it more RICH!

BUT then, through Scrappy Girl (that apartment decorating minx)...I found this recipe for this beautiful white bean, kale and pork soup on Kate F_Girl Reporter---(recipe), which I may try tonight. Look at this photo proof! Nice work!
