Ingredients

    Kale, 3 cup, chopped
    1- 15oz canBeans (Bush's) Cannellini /White kidney beans
    Fresh mushrooms, 3 oz (
    1 can (14.5oz) Chicken broth 99% fat free
    3 slices Butterball - Turkey Bacon, cut crossways 1/4 inch
    1 Med onion, chopped
    2 1/4 cups water
    1.5 tsp. Olive Oil
    2 cloves garlic, sliced thin

Directions

Cook bacon in a large sauce pan or Dutch oven over Med-high heat until crisp. (Using turkey bacon I add a Ĺ tsp of olive oil in this.)

Once bacon is crisp, add the remaining olive oil and onions, garlic and mushrooms and cook until softened. (Appx. 3 minutes)

Add chicken broth, water, beans, and kale along with a little salt and pepper. ( I use a lot of pepper!)

Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to simmer for 30 minutes.

It's quick, it's easy, and itís even better the second day! I make it a day in advance and use it for my lunches!

Serve with a slice of toasted crusty bread!
