Navy Bean Soup with Rosemary and Kale
Great Northern beans or cannellini beans also work well in this soup. Roasted garlic has a flavor entirely different from raw garlic; roasting brings out its sweet, mild, buttery taste. If you make the soup ahead of time, refrigerate, covered, and stir in the kale right before serving. To save time you can use canned beans instead of dry, just omit Step 1, stir in three (15-ounce) cans of beans when adding the kale, and proceed with recipe.
