Garbanzo Bean and Kale Soup

Garbanzo Beans or Chick Peas pair very well with this hearty Kale Variety. This vegetable and bean soup helps utilize what this week’s share has to offer.  

2 cups Garbanzo Beans Drained (if using canned beans, ½ cup dry beans if cooking)

½ a bunch of Kale cut in half length-wise then chopped

2 turnips  - chopped 2 zucchini or patty pan- chopped

2 garlic scapes – minced

¼ cup scallions- chopped (reserve the tops as an herb to finish the soup)

2 oz Olive Oil 2 cups stock (vegetable or Chicken) (water also works)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Sauté ¼ cup scallions  and garlic scapes in Olive Oil until aromatic. Try not to let it brown. Add turnips and zucchini and cook for 1-2 minutes add Kale and 1 cup of stock and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the Beans and the remaining stock and cook until all ingredients are tender (not mushy) Add salt and pepper to taste. Then finish with minced scallion tops. Several variations can be done to this dish. By adding some curry powder or chili powder you can definitely kick it up a bit. This recipe is a basic starting point. Feel free to experiment . also, if you make a grilled cheese sandwich with the pesto jack in the cheese share and dip it into this soup, that would be a tasty addition.
