Last week I shared with you my recipe for 15 Minute Sweet and Sour Pork using Maple Leaf® Country Kitchen® Smoked Ham
I love finding new quick and easy dinner ideas and this 15 Minute White Bean and Ham Soup with Kale caught my eye on AppEhtite.ca. I did tweak it a bit to suit my family’s tastes a bit more and it came out amazing. I particularly like the chopped up Kale in it, what a great idea!
I was surprised by how much flavour the soup has despite the quick cook time. Using the Schneiders® Old Fashioned® 25% Less Sodium Smoked Ham really makes things so much easier.

1 tbsp Olive oil
1 Onion, diced

2 cups (500 mL) Chopped fresh kale leaves
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.

This recipe looks and sounds delicious and I must say I'd never thought of putting kale in soup but what a great addition and it'll provide so much more nutrients.
