Bacon and Kale Soup

Who does not like an easy, flavorful and comforting meal, especially something like this Bacon and Kale Soup?

I make this bacon and kale soup pretty often. Sometimes I add bacon and sausage, and sometimes just sausage.

However, this soup is really amazing even when you make it vegetarian just by omitting meat, of course, and adding vegetable stock.

My family loves it at least a couple of times a month and it is enjoyed all year round.

Bacon and Kale Soup

Bacon goes so well with kale. I love adding it to my cabbage soup as well as green bean stew.

Well, you guys must know that I just love bacon any way you serve it, but it gives an extra flavor to soup like this one with rather tasteless kale.

Cannellini Beans and Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup

Cannellini Beans and Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup

Cannellini Beans and Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup

Cannellini Beans and Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup is so comforting and easy especially because of my little shortcut. You see, I used Progresso Light chicken noodle soup in the mixture and I loved it.

It is delicious with top-quality ingredients, all-white chicken meat, and antibiotic-free Progresso Light chicken noodle soup that I jazzed up a bit.

When I say jazzed up, I mean I added beans and fresh spinach to make this soup even more heavenly.

The other night I went to Walmart to grab a few things along with Progresso Light Chicken Noodles Soup to have when I need quick, healthy lunch or dinner choice and obviously, a bit of comfort.

Cannellini Beans and Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup

Like most people on this planet we want to be fit and in shape, right?!

So eating this hearty, delicious soup with great quality ingredients will definitely help me get to my goal sooner without starving myself.

I love Progresso soup and there are a variety of delightful and healthy choices. However, chicken noodle soup holds a special place in my heart.

Why you might ask? I have grown up eating chicken noodle soup before supper practically each and every day.

That was an absolute necessity, no questions asked. On top of it, it is really super good for you.

Cannellini Beans and Spinach Chicken Noodle Soup

I think it’s just amazing to get childhood memories and transfer them onto your own kids. Making a tradition and memories for them as well.

This is one of my favorite recipes to change this delectable soup into something other than what’s expected. It is already delightful.

However, including spinach and beans, make this soup considerably more hearty.

You may include, of course, chickpeas (garbanzo beans), different sorts of beans or vegetables, yet I gotta tell ya’ this soup is really great all alone as well.
