Potato, White Bean and Kale Soup

Winter in southern California is an unusual thing. The weather hasn’t been very “wintery” – in fact, we had a bit of a warm spell during the holidays, but are expecting some showers this week (woot, woot).

For the next day or two while we complain about the wet weather, I can almost guarantee that some of us will be researching soup recipes to warm us up from the inside.

Like this deliciously hearty potato, white bean and kale soup from blogger Tastes Lovely.

We love this recipe so much! Featuring seasonal ingredients, this soup is so comforting and easy to make (woot, again).
