Tips on Chicken, White Bean, and Kale Soup
- Substitute 2 cups of seeded, diced fresh tomatoes for the can of tomatoes, if desired.
- Be sure to strip the kale leaves off their stems before chopping. Kale stems are tough and not very tasty.
- Swap 1 Tbsp dried parsley for the fresh parsley, if that's what you have on hand.
- White beans will get tough if you add them in too soon, so be sure to not mix them in until the end of the cooking.
