Tuscan White Bean & Kale

Organic Soup Kitchen’s Tuscan White Bean & Kale soup recipe combines the many benefits of white beans and kale to bring a low fat, cholesterol-free, and protein and fiber-packed meal. 

White beans are a great source of protein for those looking for a heart-healthy addition to their diets. Beans help improve risk for cardiovascular disease, which is a disease that often coexists with hypertension, type 2 diabetes, chronic low-grade inflammation, and obesity. Most notably, the ability of beans to improve the management of body weight through its satiating effects allows it to help lower the severity of many cardiovascular and obesity-related diseases. White beans are also a notable source of calcium, which is one of the most abundant minerals in the human body and involved in many important health-related functions. Most Americans do not consume enough dietary calcium, which can lead to diseases such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and high blood cholesterol. 

Kale is an extremely nutrient-dense leafy green vegetable, providing necessary fiber, calcium, prebiotic carbohydrates, and vitamins. Additionally, kale is very rich in iron, which is an essential element for the human body, as it participates in many metabolic processes. When the body is deficient in iron, there can be serious risks to your cognitive functions and immune system. Due to all of the nutrients that kale contains, it is known for its anti-inflammatory, gastroprotective, and gut microbiota-protective activities.

The combination of hearty white beans and organic kale makes Organic Soup Kitchen’s Tuscan White Bean & Kale soup a nutrient-dense meal.
