Slow Cooker White Bean and Kale Soup – Gluten Free, Vegan

white bean northern gluten free vegan kale soup crock pot slow cooker fiber soup protein

We eat this soup all year long. It’s very popular in our house and it just dawned on me that I haven’t shared it yet. Why should I keep this awesome soup to myself? It’s got so much going for it:

  • Gluten Free
  • Protein rich
  • Fiber Rich
  • Few Ingredients
  • Slow Cooker Simple
  • Reheats so good. The leftovers get better tasting each time
  • Includes KALE! Anything that includes kale is super awesome.
  • Makes enough for us to eat it all week long, which is especially good on busy days when we don’t have time to cook.
  • Vegan but can be adjusted easily for carnivores. (Cubed ham would be very tasty and chicken breasts would be so tender they would shred right into the soup with the twist of a fork)
