Nothing more healthy than kale bean stew. Rustic and earthy the artisan kale, Tuscan beans and chunks of tender beef mean pure comfort food!

Tuscan Bean Stew

We’ve spent a lot of time in Italy. Specifically the Tuscany area. Oftentimes, we’ll rent a home for three to four weeks and immerse ourselves in the lifestyle of the area. And, this is where I first experienced tuscan bean stew. Oh, gracious, was it delicious! 

Soup Recipes with Kale

This artisan beef soup recipe with kale and beans is the kind of meal that you might get if you can go ‘back to the future’. Imagine walking into a diner, sitting on the red vinyl covered stool, and ordering up from the blue plate special.

Yep, it’s a comfort food to the nth degree. But, the thing about it is that it’s very healthy. Good carbs in the beans, and a lean tender cut of beef along with the super food, kale. So, this is an updated trendy hip artisan beef kale bean stew!

White Bean Kale Soup

It’s important to use a tender cut of beef for this whit bean kale soup. Why? Well, you’re not going to be cooking it that long, so if you use something like chuck roast, you’re going to be really disappointed. Chuck roast has to cook slow and low and for a long time in order to get tender. If you use a New York strip or ribeye cut, then you’re going to fall in love with this easy quick, relatively speaking for a rich deep stew, recipe!

Kale and Cannellini Beans

What makes this kale and cannellin beans stew even more luscious is the combination of spices. Oh, yes, you’re going to get hints of the smokey paprika, the flavors of the Italian seasoning, and then the sweet paprika tinges.

The broth, slightly creamy yet brothy, is perfect for serving both in bowls or a deep dinner plate. Have plenty of good artisan bread for sopping up the juices and cleaning that bowl or plate. This artisan beef kale bean stew will be your fave when you pull into the 1950s diner!

Cannellini Bean Recipes

Cannelini beans are a type of kidney bean and they’re perfect for your cannellini bean recipes. Sometimes you might hear them referred to as ‘white kidney beans’. Other white beans that you could substitute for the cannellini bean would be the navy or great Northern bean. But, there is a slight difference is taste. The cannellini bean tends to have a more earthy flavor. 

Kale Soup Recipe

Kale is oftentimes used in salads, but don’t overlook kale in soup recipes! It’s a rustic full flavor with  substance. Depending upon how you cut the kale, fine to medium thin ribbons, small to medium size chop, will color the taste, but not dramatically. 

There are different types of kale and my favorite is the Tuscan or dinosaur kale.
